The marine fungi occurring on the wood samples were studied. Diversity of marine fungi colonizing the lignicolous wood samples was assessed and their distribution pattern was determined. The antibacterial activity of Aspergillus oryzae was tested against five human pathogens by agar well diffusion method. Based on the results, the compounds were separated by Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) and these compounds were tested against three human bacterial pathogens. The separated compounds were further analyzed by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) to identify the functional groups, for the antibacterial activity.
