More precisely, dysfunction in the Microbiome will leads to autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia. Disease-causing microbes accumulate over time, changing gene activity & metabolic processes that resulting in an abnormal immune response against substances and tissues normally present in the body.

As of now, global biodiesel production from rapeseed oil has major role and followed by sunflower oil and in small quantities other vegetable oils. But biodiesel production from biomass feedstock using genetically engineered microorganisms would have potentially high yield and lower input requirements when comparing with plant oils, since having low yield relative to the amount of land is utilized for cropping.
