    The ever-increasing spectrum of microbial disease and emergence of life-threatening antibiotic-resistant pathogens necessitates more intensive search for microbial antagonistic agents from diverse symbionts and habitats. Based on these hypotheses the current study was initiated to investigate in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activities of both crude and pure compounds isolated from potential Actinomycetes isolates recovered from soda lakes of Ethiopia. Two soda lakes, Arenguade/Hora Hadho/Chitu were included in this study. A total of fifteen 12 water samples were collected and Actinomycetes cultures were isolated by serial dilution plating technique on various media. Morphological and biochemical characterization of selected isolates was done as described in the International Streptomyces Project Guidelines. Minimum inhibitory concentrations of the crude extract.. Read More»
