Burkholderia pseudomallei is a biothreat and the causative agent of melioidosis. There are at least seven known colony morphotypes of B. pseudomallei that appear to have different virulence properties in animal models. We report the genome sequence of B. pseudomallei strain NCTC 13392 and the genomic variations of its eight morphotype derivatives.
