They found that majority of the chitinase producing rhizobacteria belonged to genus Bacillus. Moreover, the members of the genus Bacillus have been previously reported for the production of chitinases (Schallmey et al., 2004; Wahyuni et al., 2016).
Genus Bacillus is well known to produce bioactive compounds that act as antimicrobial agents [4].
The sequencing results revealed that the genus Bacillus was predominant rather than Geobacillus and Aeribacillus in sand dunes of Thar Desert.
Bacteria of the genus Bacillus also have favorable characteristics for inoculant production, since they produce endospores that are spores highly resistant to extremes of temperature, radiation, chemical agents and time and have long shelf life (LIU et al., 2016).
Bacterial identification: The ten isolates that showed the best activity against microorganisms (bacteria and microalgae) were identified; five of them belong to the genus Bacillus. The two strains that showed the highest activity correspond to Shewanella algae (18) and Staphylococcus sp.
There is a great sequence homology in 16S rRNA gene sequence of some members of the genus Bacillus namely B.
The genus Bacillus was most frequently identified among the LDPE biodegrading genera in this study.
More than 89% of the thermophilic microorganisms in the device belong to the genus Bacillus, with a large number of Bacillus stearothermophilus being the most abundant species in Bacillus (32% of isolates), followed by Bacillus stearothermophilus (22% of isolates).
The genus Bacillus only was represented with one species and was named as Bacillus subtilis (two isolates AAUBT9A and AAUBT10B).
The genus Bacillus constitutes a diverse group of rod-shaped gram-negative bacteria which has the ability to secrete many exoenzymes (Moriarty 1996, 1998).
