The Burkholderia Genome Database website and associated genome annotations are being continually updated with a focus on expanding functionality to facilitate accelerated discovery of Burkholderia spp. drug targets, antibiotic resistance genes and vaccine candidates.
This database is a companion to the Pseudomonas Genome Database, which was originally developed by the Chiron Corporation in 1998 as part of the original Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 sequencing project. A team of researchers from Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia now manage development of both.
Thanks to the support from our funding sources, this effort is currently being co-ordinated by:
Dr. Fiona Brinkman, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Simon Fraser University (lab website)
Dr. Robert E.W. Hancock at the University of British Columbia (lab website)
Database development led by:
Geoff Winsor, Brinkman Lab, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Simon Fraser University.
