This photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Burkholderia thailandensis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of MacConkey agar, for a 24 hour time period, at a temperature of 37�C. See PHIL 12420, for a closer view of these bacterial colonies. Also, see both PHIL 12405 and 12406, for views of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, at the same temperature (37�C), however, at a twice the amount of time (48hr), and note that PHIL 12410 and 12411 depict the same bacterial specie grown on the same media, but at a greater temperature (42�C), and greater time period (48hr). Take a look at PHIL 12427 and 12428 colonial growth, on the same medium and for the same amount of time (24hr), but at a greater temperature (42�C).
