Abstract:

The genus consists of a group of opportunistic Gram-negative pathogens associated with severe and potentially life-threatening medical diseases. Until fairly recently, the genus was thought to be a single species known as ( ). However, in 2007, the genus was formally named as a member of the family ( ). Through new identification techniques and genomic sequencing, we have since learned a great deal about the bacteria that make up this genus ( ). Now, 10 individual species have been identified ( ). These bacteria have been found in a wide range of environments, including water, food, and soil ( ). In the clinical setting, spp. have been isolated in feces, sputum, blood, bone marrow, and cerebrospinal fluid ( ).
