Author(s): Anuj H. Chheda , Madhavi R. Vernekar An indigenously isolated Bacillus cereus isolated from soil was found to be capable of producing ε-poly-l-lysine (ε-PL), a homo-poly-amino acid of l-lysine which is used as a safe food preservative. The production of the ε-PL was optimized by identifying the most significant components of the medium which affect its production under shake-flask...
