Burkholderia pseudomallei (B. pseudomallei), strain K96243 was initially isolated by Dr. Sirirurg Songsivilai in 1996 from a diabetic patient with fatal septicemic melioidosis in Khon Kaen, Thailand. B. pseudomallei, strain K96243 was passaged approximately 24 times before deposition at BEI Resources.

B. pseudomallei, strain K96243 was deposited as positive for Yersinia-like fimbrial (YLF) gene and negative for Burkholderia thailandensis-like flagellum and chemotaxis (BTFC) gene. When grown on Ashdown's selective agar strain K96243 is known to display only a Type I colony morphology. The genome sequences of chromosomes 1 and 2 of B. pseudomallei, strain K96243 are available (GenBank: NC_006350.1 and NC_006351.1).

Each vial contains approximately 0.7 mL of bacterial culture in Tryptic Soy broth supplemented with 10% glycerol.

Additional information and tools are available at PATRIC (Pathosystems Resource Integration Center).
