The Burkholderiaceae are a family of bacteria included in the order Burkholderiales. It includes some pathogenic species, such as Burkholderia mallei (glanders) and Burkholderia pseudomallei (melioidosis). Specific sets of gram negative bacteria, such as members from the Burkholderiaceae family, accumulate in the stoma vascular fraction from overweight or obese patients almost proportionally to the body mass index [PMID 24003922].
Family is phenotypically, metabolically, and ecologically diverse. Includes both strictly aerobic and facultatively anaerobic chemoorganotrophs and obligate and facultative chemolithotrophs.
