Abstract: Microbes are single-cell organisms and are so small that millions of them can fit into the eye of a needle and still remain invisible to the naked human eye. In this work we discuss the procedure behind building of these microbes, possible areas where the designer microbes can work phenomenal and focus on the important and successful man made microbes. Although not an in-depth assessment, this paper will help the readers get acquainted with the miracles these microbes can pull off from fighting obesity to cleaning up of the environmental pollution. With the incorporation of a technique called multivariate-modular pathway engineering approach”, production of anticancer taxol precursors in E. coli has been optimized.
