Unscramble the Blue Letters

So we're just at the beginning of this discovery. We're just finding out that moicbres have implications for all these different kinds of diseases, ranging from inflammatory bowel disease to obesity, and perhaps even atsuim and depression. What we need to do, though, is we need to develop a kind of microbial GPS, where we don't just know where we are currently but also where we want to go and what we need to do in order to get there, and we need to be able to make this simple enough that even a cilhd can use it. (Laughter)
