Retraction Note: A novel bacterial isolate Stenotrophomonas maltophilia as living factory for synthesis of gold nanoparticles
Microbial Cell Factories volume 8, Article number: 52 (2009)
This article  was submitted to Microbial Cell Factories at the same time as a very similar article  was submitted to Applied Physics Letters, s ubsequently published in June 2009. The two articles were produced from the same data and contained extensive overlap including duplication of figures. As such the authors would like to retract the Microbial Cell Factories article. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused to the editorial staff and readers.
