Screening, Optimization and Production of Biosurfactants by Candida Species Isolated from Oil Polluted Soils


Biosurfactants are amphipathic molecules with both hydrophilic and hydrophobic moieties and are surface active agent that are produced extracellularly or as a part of cell membrane by bacteria, yeast and fungi. In the present study, six different microorganisms were isolated from oil contaminated soils. Screening of biosurfactant producing potential strain… (More)
