During the screening programme for microbial cultures producing antimicrobial agents, an active microbial strain of Streptomyces was isolated from the agricultural soil of Narnaul, Haryana India. Physiological, biochemical characteristics and 16S ribosomal RNA sequence homology studies revealed that it was similar to Streptomyces levis (sequence similarity 100%). The microbial strain was submitted to Genomebio Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Pune, Maharashtra, India under Accession No. EU124569. The…
