Probiotics: iGEM contribution


We went to the most important congress about probiotics in Mexico, and during this event we got the opportunity to talk with the Dr. Mariano Garcia Garibay director of biological sciences and health from UAM, and asked him what is the most important that was missing in modern probiotics?. He replied that modern probiotics should be directed in a general way because today the commercial ones do not have a specific function and act in a general way, this means that they do not attack a specific problem which should be treated with this kind of tools. So the main objective of modern probiotics must be to fight specific problems of the public health which also can increase its commercial value in the market. A specific function for a probiotic is what needs to be improved in order to ameliorate some health problem that can be attacked from this perspective
