This photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Burkholderia thailandensis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of MacConkey agar, for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 37�C. See PHIL 12406, for a closer view of these bacterial colonies. Also, see both PHIL 12410 and 12411, for views of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, for the same amount of time, however, at a greater temperature of 42�C, and note that PHIL 12419 and 12420 depict the same bacterial specie grown on the same media and at the same temperature, but for only 24hrs. Take a look at PHIL 12427 and 12428, which depicts B. thailandensis grown on the same medium, but at a greater temperature (42�C), and only half the time (24hr).
