The importance of the microbiome to human health has gradually been elucidated in recent years. The collective activities of the microbes – their metabolism, their interactions among different species, and their interactions with the host's immune system – play important roles in maintaining the health status of multiple systems, including the gastrointestinal, metabolic, and the neurological systems. Since the early 2000s, there had been multiple startups and non-profit clinical projects investigating the use of microbiome components as therapeutics for various diseases. With the development of synthetic biology, novel methods of applying genetically engineered microbes to specifically target certain disease mechanisms are also being developed.
