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 issue missing in modern probiotics? He replied that modern probiotics should not be directed in a general way because today the commercial ones do not have a specific function, this means that they do not attack a particular problem which should be treated with this 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 specialized function for a probiotic is what needs to be improved in order to ameliorate some of the most important health problems, and make it easier for people to take care of their health.
