The constant increase of multi-drug resistant pathogens stimulates research, more than ever, to identify and develop new antibacterial compounds. The recent advances in genome sequencing have highlighted the genus Bacillus as an unexpected source of antibiotic-like compounds. This review focus on the different class of antimicrobial molecules produce by Bacillus genus such as polyketides, nonribosomal peptide, bacteriocins as well as other unusual peptides."
