Diversity among biosurfactant producing Bacillus spp. from diverse habitats was studied among 77 isolates. Cluster analysis based on phenotypic characteristics using unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic averages (UPGMAs) method was performed. Bacillus isolates possessing high surface tension activity and five reference strains were subjected to amplified 16S rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA). A correlation between the phenotypic and genotypic characterization of Bacillus spp. is… 
Production of Biosurfactant by Bacillus Licheniformis Strain Isolated from Contaminated Soil
Biosurfactants are active surface components act as stimulants for biodegradation of the hydrophobic substrate available for microbial attachment. These molecules reduce interfacial tension in
ISOLATION, SCREENING, AND CHARACTERIZATION OF BIOSURFACTANT-PRODUCING BACILLUS SPP. FROM SOIL AND THEIR POTENTIAL BIOFILM INHIBITORY ACTIVITIES AGAINST PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA
Biosurfactants are surface-active compounds usually produced by microbial cells, thus, their biodegradable nature and low toxicity. The capability to lessen surface and interfacial tensions
Distribution and molecular characterization of biosurfactant-producing bacteria
TLDR
Bacillus jeotgali and Aerococcus viridans are reporting as biosurfactant producing bacteria for the first time and Bacillus jeOTgali is isolated for first time from crude oil of oilfield reservoir in this study in world.
Influence of biosurfactant producing Bacillus tequilensis LK5.4 isolate of kinema, a fermented soybean, on seed germination and growth of maize (Zea mays L.)
TLDR
In this study, the lipopeptide biosurfactant was extracted, purified and characterized from the Bacillus isolate LK5.4 obtained from kinema samples of Sikkim, and identified as surfactin.
Exploiting the aerobic endospore-forming bacterial diversity in saline and hypersaline environments for biosurfactant production
TLDR
The environments studied can harbor endospore-forming bacteria capable of producing biosurfactants with biotechnological applications and the presence of surfactin was demonstrated in one of the most promising strains.

Characterization of Biosurfactant Produced by Bacillus licheniformis TT42 Having Potential for Enhanced Oil Recovery
TLDR
In the preliminary studies, the biosurfactant-TT42 was found to be functionally stable at under conditions of temperature, pH, and salinity generally prevalent in oil reservoirs and to have a CMC of 22 mg/l.
Seasonal variation in bacterial diversity of Tuva
TLDR
The seasonal bacterial diversity study of thermophilic isolated from TuvaTimba physicochemical, biochemical tests and molecular characterization found that the identified isolates belonged to genera Bacillus, Brevibacillus, Geobacilli, Anoxybacillus andBrevibacterium may have potential biotechnological and industrial application.
A study on Hydrocarbon Degradation by Biosurfactant Producing Bacillus cereus in Oil Contaminated Soil Samples
Microorganisms are the important factors in the degradation of the toxic substances in our environment. Petrol and diesel oil is one of the complex mixtures which cannot be easily degraded. The
Prevalence of Wheat Associated Bacillus spp. and Their Bio-Control Efficacy Against Fusarium Root Rot
Bacillus spp. are the most prevalent group of bacteria in nature. Their prevalence depends upon multiple factors, namely, sporulation, antagonism, and production of secondary metabolites. The

Genetic and Phenotypic Diversity of Bacillus polymyxa in Soil and in the Wheat Rhizosphere
TLDR
It appears that wheat roots may select a specific subpopulation from the soil B. polymyxa isolated from the rhizoplane because of a higher variability among strains isolated from nonrhizosphere and rhizosphere soil than among rhzoplane strains.
Numerical taxonomy and ecology of petroleum-degrading bacteria
TLDR
It is concluded that the degradation of petroleum is accomplished by a diverse range of bacterial taxa, some of which were isolated only at given sampling stations and, more specifically, from sediment collected at a given station.
Numerical taxonomy of heavy metal-tolerant bacteria isolated from an estuary.
TLDR
From the results of the taxonomic study, it is concluded that metal tolerance in estuarine water and sediment bacteria occurs among a restricted range of taxa distributed throughout theEstuarine environment.
Complete genome sequence of the industrial bacterium Bacillus licheniformis and comparisons with closely related Bacillus species
TLDR
Despite the unmistakable organizational similarities between the B. licheniformis and B. subtilis genomes, there are notable differences in the numbers and locations of prophages, transposable elements and a number of extracellular enzymes and secondary metabolic pathway operons that distinguish these species.
Numerical taxonomy and ecology of oligotrophic bacteria isolated from the estuarine environment.
TLDR
Slow-growing bacteria are distributed throughout the estuarine environment and can account for a large proportion of the colonies observed on media after prolonged periods of incubation, and the oligotrophic bacteria appear to predominate in areas where the concentration of available nutrients is low and are more characteristic of non-eutrophic aquatic systems.
BIOSURFACTANT - PRODUCING BACTE- RIA FOUND IN CONTAMINATED AND UNCONTAMINATED SOILS
TLDR
In this study, the prevalence of biosurfactant producers in uncontaminated soils is examined and bacteria were found to constitute a significant proportion (up to 35%) of aerobic heterotrophs.

TLDR
Biosurfactants are more effective, selective, environmentally friendly, and stable than many synthetic surfactants, and the most promising applications are cleaning of oil-contaminated tankers, oil spill management, transportation of heavy crude oil, enhanced oil recovery, recovery of crude oil from sludge, and bioremediation of sites contaminated with hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and other pollutants.
