Soil is a habitat for microorganisms and also serves as reservoir for their metabolites. The genus Streptomyces is one of prominent soil inhabitant, comprising up to 90% of actinomycetes isolated from soil samples. Streptomyces is the largest and the most important genus in the order actinomycetales. The genus Streptomyces is prolific producers of bioactive secondary metabolites that have important applications both in medicine and agriculture. In the history of drug discovery, majority of novel substances of microbial origin are isolated from Streptomyces, over two-thirds of all microbial antimicrobial agents are derived from them. These organisms are of high biotechnological and commercial values; and continue to be routinely screened for new bioactive compounds. Streptomyces spp. is aerobic, filamentous, Gram positive soil dwelling bacteria with high G+C content in their genomic composition. Phylogenetic Characterization of Culturable Antibiotic Producing Streptomyces from Rhizospheric Soils: Mobolaji Felicia Adegboye and Olubukola Oluranti Babalola. OMICS group publishes articles involving many subjects like Pharmacy, Life sciences, Engineering, Medical, Management and Clinical. Each of the above mentioned department publishes all the major kinds of articles which include; research, review, mini-review, short communication, case report etc.
