hi..i've a problem here..hope all of you can help me to solve it. I've isolated a bacteria and i've done biochemical test to identify it using API 20 NE kit. the result told me that my isolate is 99.9% chromobacterium violaceum. so, i google some informations about this bacteria..what make me confuse now is all the informations i got told me this bacteria has purple pigmentation due to violacein it produces. but, my bacteria showed pinkish pigmentation..I've done biochemical test for 3 times and it give me the same result. so, my question is, is it possible my bacteria is chromobacterium violaceum? could somebody give me a way to solve this problem..what i'm thinking now is to do 16s rDNA sequencing..is it a good idea?
