Abstract


The Tetrodon cutcutia found in the river Brahmaputra were dissected and its intestinal contents were examined for the presence of bacterial strains. In situ culture of bacteria inhabiting the intestine of Tetrodon cutcutia was conducted in the media followed by biochemical analysis. A novel bacterial strain was confirmed by NCBI after 16S rRNA sequencing.

 

Keywords: Tetrodon cutcutia, 16S rRNA sequencing, novel bacterial strain
