In order to develop rapid tests to determine the genomovar status of BCC isolates, nucleotide sequence polymorphism in two genes, the 16S rRNA gene (16S rDNA) and recA gene has been examined, and only recA based typing has been found useful to identify BCC strains from both environmental samples and sputum as well as to identify other Burkholderia species.
