Actinomycetes associated with the Seagrasses

Actinomycetes that are well known for producing secondary metabolites have been cultured from seagrass bed sediments. Wide diversity of actinomycetes were obtained and the culture were seen through foldscope which revealed actinomycetes of different cell morphology.
