Marcha and thiat are traditionally prepared amylolytic starters use for production of various ethnic alcoholic beverages in Sikkim and Meghalaya states in India. In the present study we have tried to investigate the bacterial and fungal community composition of marcha and thiat by using high throughput sequencing. Characterization of bacterial community depicts phylum Proteobacteria is the most dominant in both marcha (91.4%) and thiat (53.8%), followed by Firmicutes, and Actinobacteria… 
Diversity of Filamentous Fungi Isolated From Some Amylase and Alcohol-Producing Starters of India
Fungal species present in these amylolytic starters are morphologically, ecologically and phylogenetically diverse and showed high diversity within the community.
Phenotypic and Genotypic Identification of Bacteria Isolated From Traditionally Prepared Dry Starters of the Eastern Himalayas
The bacterial diversity in 35 samples of traditionally prepared dry starters, represented by marcha of Nepal, Sikkim, the Darjeeling hills, and Bhutan, and paa, pee, and phut of Arunachal Pradesh, is studied by sanger sequencing.
Impact of Microbial Composition of Cambodian Traditional Dried Starters (Dombea) on Flavor Compounds of Rice Wine: Combining Amplicon Sequencing With HP-SPME-GCMS
Investigation of the microbiota associated in five ferment starters and the effect of a traditional fermentation process using a metagenomics sequencing analysis and HS-SPME-GCMS for the characterization of the aromatic profiles at the end of fermentation suggested microbial succession for the assimilation of starch and subsequently ass assimilation of fermentation by-products leading to the production of flavor compounds.
Diversity of Yeasts and Molds by Culture-Dependent and Culture-Independent Methods for Mycobiome Surveillance of Traditionally Prepared Dried Starters for the Production of Indian Alcoholic Beverages
Different techniques used in this paper revealed the diversity and differences of mycobiome species in starter cultures of India which may be referred as baseline data for further research.
Exploring the microbiota and metabolites of traditional rice beer varieties of Assam and their functionalities
Functional predictions based on the bacterial profiles indicated pathways, such as metabolisms of carbohydrate, amino acid, vitamins and cofactors, and xenobiotic biodegradation, to be active in the rice beer varieties.
Changes in Microbial Diversity and Nutritional Components of Mare Milk Before and After Traditional Fermentation
The formation and quality of nutrients before and after fermentation depends on microbial community dynamics. In this study, the nutrients and microflora of mare milk were studied before and after
Constructing Micro-Landscapes: Management and Selection Practices on Microbial Communities in a Traditional Fermented Beverage
Colonche is a traditional beverage produced in Mexico by the fermentation of fruits of several cacti species. In the Meridional Central Plateau region of Mexico, where this study was conducted, it is
Integrative Metagenomics–Metabolomics for Analyzing the Relationship Between Microorganisms and Non-volatile Profiles of Traditional Xiaoqu
The metabolic network generated for the breakdown of substrates and formation of SDMs in Xiaoqu was found to primarily center on the metabolism of carbohydrates and the tricarboxylic acid cycle, which might guide researchers in the production of stable and efficient Xiaoqu in the future.


Lactic acid bacteria in Hamei and Marcha of North East India
Mixed dough inocula used as starters for preparation of various indigenous alcoholic beverages in Manipur and Sikkim in India showed a strong acidifying ability and they also produced a wide spectrum of enzymes, which indicated lactic acid bacterial composition was high.
Identification and characterization of yeasts in brem, a traditional Balinese rice wine
Fifty-one yeast strains isolated from fermented mash of Balinese rice wine, brem, fermented using five different types of starters, ragi tape, were identified on the basis of their internal
Bacterial and fungal diversity in the traditional Chinese liquor fermentation process.
Microbial Diversity Analysis of Fermented Mung Beans (Lu-Doh-Huang) by Using Pyrosequencing and Culture Methods
The microbial communities during Lu-doh-huang fermentation were markedly diverse, and pyrosequencing revealed a complete picture of the microbial consortium.
Lactic acid bacteria in murcha and ragi
Sixty-nine strains of bacteria isolated from murcha and ragi (amylase starters) were studied and most belonged to Pediococcus, probably P. pentosaceus, and to Streptococcus faecalis; none were able to attack starch although they are used in starch fermentations.
