This image depicts a close view of a Petri dish culture plate, which had contained a growth medium of sheep blood agar (SBA), and which was inoculated with Gram-positive, Burkholderia pseudomallei bacteria, that had then been incubated for a 48 hour time period, producing the colonial growth you see here. The organism's colonial morphology is known to change, as the incubation is extended. B. pseudomallei is the causative agent of the disease known as melioidosis.
