Background: Pseudomonas aeruginosa that produces biosurfactant (rhamnolipids) is used for emulsifying the oil-infested areas. The objective of the study was to isolate and identify a strain of environmentally important that can act on oil-contaminated soil. Materials and Methods: Isolation and identification of P. aeruginosa from oil‑spilled soil isolated from Chennai. Rhamnolipid production was enhanced by fish oil. pH, temperature and incubation time were optimize using RSM, solid-state… Expand
