Halophilic microorganisms live in saline environment and have the ability to produce biosurfactant. These organisms have particular adaptation to increase stability in adverse environment that can be used in various fields of biotechnology. In present research work, the biosurfactant producing halophiles were isolated from sea water sample from coastal areas nearby Mumbai. The effect of different metal ions on growth and biosurfactant production was studied. 15 different bacterial colonies were… CONTINUE READING
