Degradation of polyaromatic hydrocarbons employing biosurfactant-producing Bacillus pumilus KS2


An efficient hydrocarbon-degrading native bacterial strain Bacillus pumilus KS2 (identified by partial 16S rDNA gene sequencing) was isolated from crude oil-contaminated soil collected from oil fields of Lakowa, Sivasagar district of Assam, India.
