Matrix Binding microbes and bacteriophages to counter infection

Matrix binding proteins from probiotics and viruses:
We are screening different potential probiotic microbes from popular and affordable fermented food and beverages, which bind to denatured collagen (gelatine) and fibronectin. The goal is to design better probiotics, peptides drugs which will compete against the host -pathogen interaction at cell surface and also to design bacteriophages which will compete/kill the enteric pathogens (Sanitation Biotechnology).
