不可培养微生物培养方法培养技术凝胶剂Uncultured Microorganisms Cultivation Method Cultivation Technology Gelling Agent



Microorganisms in nature have a tremendous species diversity and high value of utilization. However, only a small proportion of microbes in nature can be cultured under laboratory conditions. That is because most microorganisms cannot be cultured under traditional cultivation methods and technologies. This review summarized the factors influencing culturability and new cultivation technologies, focusing on microbiological culture medium modification, gelling agent selection and the improvement culture condition. These technologies significantly increased microbial culturability, resulting in new microbial species isolation and identification, and consequently improved microbial species diversity. Applications of these technologies may exert great effect on microbial resource development.
