An article entitled “AZ-130 Strain from Oil-contaminated Soil of Azerbaijan: Isolation, Antibacterial Screening, and Optimization of Cultivation Conditions” by Ayten Agayeva, Stephen Streatfield and Irada Huseynova, scientists of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnologies and Fraunhofer Center for Molecular Biotechnology, USA was published in the prestigious journal Microbiology of Springer, which is indexed in the Web of Science, Scopus and RSCI databases. The impact factor of the journal is 1.156. The article deals with the isolation of AZ-130 strain from oil-contaminated soils of Azerbaijan, the optimization of the nutrient environment of the strain for antibacterial activity, and the high-level synthesis of antibacterial compounds. The strong antibacterial activity shown by the AZ-130 strain was found to be provided by one molecule.
