Members of the Burkholderia cepacia complex are Gram-negative b-Proteobacteria that are classified
into nine genomic species or genomovars. Some representatives of this group of bacteria, such as B.
multivorans and B. cenocepacia are considered to be dangerous pathogens for cystic fibrosis (CF) patients because of their capacity to colonize CF lungs.
