Isolation and partial characterization of pigment‐like antibiotics produced by a new strain of Streptosporangium isolated from an Algerian soil
Aims:  Identification of a new actinomycete strain Sg3, belonging to the genus Streptosporangium and partial characterization of the produced antibacterial activities.
A method for isolating strains of the genus Streptoverticillium from soil
Members of the genera Streptomyces, Micromonospora, Nocardia and Streptosporangium were effectively inhibited by oxytetracycline at concentrations tolerated by a majority of the Streptoverticillium
Selective isolation of bioactive soil actinomycetes belonging to the Streptomyces violaceusniger phenotypic cluster
Aims:  To devise and evaluate a strategy for isolating members of the Streptomyces violaceusniger phenotypic cluster, which are known to be a promising source of bioactive metabolites.
Nutritional Characterization of Some Selected Actinomycetes
TLDR
The methodology for an extensive nutritional analysis of actinomycetes is described, and the results are discussed on the basis of their taxonomic and ecological implications.
Serological Characteristics of Morphologically and Biochemically Similar Streptomyces Species
It is the purpose of this investigation to test for serological characteristics of six Streptomyces species which exhibit identical and/or very closely similar morphological and biochemical
Anti-Bacterial Activity of Endophytic Streptomyces sp. towards Acinetobacter baumannii
TLDR
Aims: To screen fifty -six endophytic streptomyces isolates for anti -bacterial activity on two clinical strains of Streptomycin and Clostridium difficile.
Streptomyces inusitatus sp. nov.
A new species of bacteria is described for which the name Streptomyces inusitatus is proposed. The organism is characterized by a blue mass of aerial mycelium, coiled spore chains, spores with smooth
Isolation of Streptomyces Species from Soil
This unit describes a general protocol for the isolation of Streptomyces species from soil and fresh water, using a procedure for the selective growth of Streptomyces species. Preparation of the
Evaluation of Criteria Used in the ISP Cooperative Description of Type Strains of Streptomyces and Streptoverticillium Species
TLDR
An analysis of the descriptions of the type or neotype strains of 457 named Streptomyces and Streptoverticillium species revealed that the International StrePTomyces Project methods for reporting spore mass color, reverse color, and sporechain morphology need improvement.
Studies on Isolation and Characterization of Marine Actinomycete Strain NMR 2 from South East of India
TLDR
Studies on Isolation and Characterization of Marine Actinomycete Strain NMR 2 from South East of India shows good results in terms of isolation and characterization.

HYDROGEN SULFIDE PRODUCTION BY STREPTOMYCES AS A CRITERION FOR SPECIES DIFFERENTIATION
TLDR
The Society of American Bacteriologists Subcommittee on Taxonomy of Actinomycetales is promoting the reevaluation of all criteria for species delineation within this group as one of the initial steps in the evolution of a better system of identification.
STREPTOMYCES ALBUS (ROSSI-DORIA) WAKSMAN ET HENRICI: TAXONOMIC STUDY OF STRAINS LABELED STREPTOMYCES ALBUS
TLDR
In streptomycete taxonomy and nomenclature the most important species is Streptomyces albus (Rossi-Doria) Waksman et Henrici, and the descriptions of this species suggest that one of Waks man's strains might be most representative of the type.
