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 42�C. See PHIL 12407, for a view of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, for the same amount of time, however, at a lesser temperature of 37�C, and PHIL 12421 and 12422 for the views of B. thailandensis colonies grown on PC agar, also at a lesser temperature (37�C), and at only half the time (24hrs). Finally, see both PHIL 12429 and 12430, which reveal colonial growth on PC agar, at the same temperature (42�C), but for half the time, as well (24hrs).
