Hadi Maleki & Omid Mashinchian
Introduction: Streptomyces, gram-positive and aerobic bacteria, are distinguished genus of Actinomycetes. This economically important genus is well studied owing to its capacity in producing more than 70% of antibiotics. In fact, need for novel, safe and more efficient antibiotics is a key challenge to the pharmaceutical industry today, moreover, increase in opportunistic infections in the immune compromised host has influenced this demand. Nowadays, evaluating morphological and biochemical differences as well as studying streptomyces genetic diversity...
