Abstract
Two new species, Burkholderia multivorans and Burkholderia vietnamiensis, a nd three genomovars (genomovars I, III and IV) currently constitute the Bur kholderia cepacia complex. A panel of 30 well-characterized strains represe ntative of each genomovar and new species was assembled to assist with iden tification, epidemiological analysis, and virulence studies on this importa nt group of opportunistic pathogens.
