Query: NC_007650:2429307 Burkholderia thailandensis E264 chromosome II, complete sequence Lineage: Burkholderia thailandensis; Burkholderia; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism was originally isolated from a rice field sample in Thailand. Burkholderia thailandensis is a common soil saprophyte (lives on decaying organic matter in the soil). This bacterium is very similar to the human and animal pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei but appears to be avirulent. Distinguishing the two organisms is very difficult and may depend on using monoclonal antibodies to detect differences in exopolysaccharide production.

General Information: Isolation: Soil; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 26 - 30C; Habitat: Soil. Starkeya novella is a non-motile soil bacterium that belongs to the facultatively heterotrophic microbes. It is able to grow heterotrophically on a variety of single-carbon compounds, sugar alcohols, amino acids, carboxylic acids, and fatty acids. In addition, it is able to grow chemolithoautotrophically using a variety of inorganic and organic sulfur compounds such as thiosulfate, tetrathionate, dimethylsulfide (DMS), and dimethylsulfoxide.
