Burkholderia

[bərk′holdēr′ēə]
a genus of gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that includes several species formerly classified in the genus Pseudomonas, including the agents of glanders and melioidosis. The bacteria are both human and plant pathogens. Their role in the biodegradation of polychlorinated biphenols also makes them important environmental bacteria.
