Researchers construct complex synthetic microbiome

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

This can help engineer microbiome-based therapies in the future.

Researchers at Standford University have built from scratch the most complex and well-defined synthetic microbiome that will help us better understand the connections between the microbiome and human health, a university press release said.

The microbiome is a community of microorganisms that are found to cohabit in a given environment. The human gut has its own set of microorganisms that are markedly different from those on the skin.

The microbial community of over 100 bacterial species could help scientists learn more about the connections between the microbiome and human health.
