Description

A close relative of Bacillus cereus isolated from local soil samples was previously shown to inhibit the growth of P. aeruginosa when grown competitively using a cross streak method. Organic extracts from this bacteria has been tested against several ESKAPE pathogens using both direct application and TLC–bioautography. Further work to isolate and test the antimicrobial compounds produced by this bacteria closely related to Bacillus cereus will be discussed. Various strains of Bacillus cereus have been commonly found in soil and in food.
