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. OMICS Group through its Open Access Initiative is committed to make genuine and reliable contributions to the scientific community. OMICS Group hosts over 700+ peer-reviewed journals and has organized over 3000+ International Scientific Conferences all over the world. OMICS International is has wide classification of journals and Molecular Biology is one of the important of them. Molecular Biology covers each and every aspect of gene studies from the very basic to the new advance.
