Microbes are the provider of ecosystem services and act as a key component for environmental sustainability and human health. It is believed that the cultivation and preservation of new taxa with innovative traits is essential for biotechnological growth even in the era of omics-driven science. Cultivation and preservation of entire microbial diversity is impossible even with extra efforts and use of novel high-throughput cultivation approaches. Therefore, development of protocols for community and habitat preservation should be priorities. In current article, we discussed about importance of microbes for biotechnological growth and their preservation for future reference research and application. In addition we also incorporated the loopholes of current preservation research and tried to incorporate the suggestion to fill the existing gaps. We tried to give a brief overview of different preservation methods used for preservation of bacteria and fungi and also incorporated the concept of microbial extinction and need to preserve intact community and microbiome for future culturomics, metagenomics and proteomics.
