Abstract

Marine environments, especially sediments, are rich sources of actinomycetes that provide many bioactive compounds, primarily antibiotics. The goal of this study was to investigate the diversity of cultivable actinomycetes and their potential to produce antibiotics from sediments collected from the coastal zones of Turkey.
