This photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Burkholderia thailandensis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of Pseudomonas cepacia (PC) agar, for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 37�C. See PHIL 12416, for a view of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, for the same amount of time, however, at a greater temperature of 42�C, and PHIL 12421 and 12422 for the views of B. thailandensis colonies grown on PC agar, at the same temperature, but at only half the time. Finally, see both PHIL 12429 and 12430, which reveal colonial growth on PC agar, at a greater temperature (42�C), and for half the time (24hr), as well.
