Abstract:

Adaptation of marine bacteria to the harsh environments has led to a rich biological and genetic diversity. Marine bacteria are attracting attention as new biotechnological resources. These bacteria can be a potential source of new bioactive compounds for industrial, agricultural, environmental, pharmaceutical and medical uses. The present paper reveals the potential of the marine bacteria with biotechnological applications related to antimicrobial drug discovery, environmental remediation, and developing new resources for industrial processes.
