  author={Wesam Salem and Nasr El-deen},
  journal={African Journal of Microbiology Research},
Methanolic and ethyl acetate extracts from eight different seaweeds collected from the red sea Hurghada, Egypt (June, 2009) were screened for their antibacterial activities against both gram positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus NCIMB 50080 and Bacillus cereus) and gram negative bacteria (Escherichia coli NCIMB 50034, Enterococcus feacalis NCIMB 50030, Salmonella sp. and Pseudomonase aeruginosa). [] Key Method The antibacterial activities were expressed as zone of inhibition and minimum inhibitory…
