Burkholderia (Paraburkholderia) phymatum STM815, Burkholderia (Paraburkholderia) xenovorans LB400 (2 assemblies), and Burkholderia vietnamiensis G4 were suppressed by RefSeq for various reasons and as a result, deleted from our database. They have now been restored to this site. We apologize for any inconvienience.

Burkholderia Genome Database version 8.1 released with focus on updating names for T3SS gene cluster, plasmid-encoded ptw Type IV cluster, VirB-VirD-like type IV cluster, T6SS cluster, bce-I and bce-II gene clusters, O antigen biosynthesis gene clusters, arn gene cluster, bactobolin biosynthetic gene cluster, malleilactone biosynthetic gene cluster, hemin uptake (hmu operon), toxoflavin-like gene cluster, HMAQ biosynthesis operon.
922 annotation updates with emphasis on strains B. cenocepacia J2315, B. cenocepacia K56-2, B. dolosa AU0158, B. glumae BGR1, B. pseudomallei K96243,B. mallei ATCC 23344 and B. thailandensis E264
622 new isolates added to the database for a total of 1807 Burkholderia genomes.
Antibiotic resistance (AMR) gene predictions based on the Resistance Gene Identifier (RGI) analysis tool which utilizes the Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database (CARD) hosted by Andrew McArthur's Lab at McMaster University. ( J2315 example )
