13 morphologically distinct strains of thermophilic bacteria isolated from a hot spring site in Garhwal region of Indian Himalaya have been characterized and identified using phenotypic and genotypic characters. All the strains developed circular to irregular colonies between 2-3 mm on Tryptone Yeast extract (TY) agar plates at 65 degrees C following 24-36 h incubation. In TY broth, facultative bacterial growth was observed within 12-16 h of incubation at 65 degrees C. The bacterial strains… CONTINUE READING
