A Bacillus licheniformis TT01 strain has been isolated from raw quail manure compost on the 25th day of the incubation. Studying on physiological characteristics showed that this isolate could grow best in the LB medium, pH from 7.0 to 7.5, at 40 °C for 15 to 25 hrs. Bacillus licheniformis TT01 showed a significant ability of producing extracellular enzymes including amylase, protease, cellulase and having strong antibacterial effect on Salmonella typhi ATCC 14028. This strain can be applied to improve compost producing from quail manure, enhance the role of microorganisms in composting as well as control pathogens in the manure.
