Characterisation of Actinomycetes
Production of microbial volatile organic compounds
For a comprehensive guide to actinomycete characterisation see the Compendium of Actinobacteria from Prof. Joachim Wink at the German Collection of Microorganisms & Cell Cultures (DSMZ). This resouce provides protocols for characterising a wide range of features for new isolates, but may also be applicable more broadly for example for phenotyping experiments. The tests include colony morphology, melanin production, salt tolerance, carbon utlilisation and much more. To download the guide please see the link below.
