Abstract

Several bacteria such as Flavobacterium, Serratias, Chromobacterium and Streptomyces that produce different pigments are playing a significant role in various fields of sciences. Alternatively, current knowledge about bacterial pigments is limited to medical bacteriology, for instance their importance in virulence factors and protective features, however recently the investigators have revealed the supplementary consequence of pigments in food, textile and pharmaceutical aspects.
