The genus Streptomyces consists of soil and water Gram positive filamentous bacteria well known for their ability to produce complex secondary metabolites including many antibiotics. Additionally they undergo complex multicellular development, with spores germinating to form a branched, multinucleoid substrate mycelium, which then produces an aerial mycelium which septates into uninucleoid spores. Streptomyces is also unusual in having linear chromosomes with terminal inverted repeats with terminal proteins covalently bound to their 5' ends.

Streptomyces avermitilis produces secondary metabolites, one of which, avermectin, is commercially important in human and veterinary medicine.
