To understand the interaction between different microbes, it is important to understand how they communicate with one another in their adjacent environment. These interactions are beneficial because when different microbes interact, they stimulate specific mechanisms, release signals, and result in the production and synthesis of important vaccines, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agents, and secondary metabolites. These metabolites are beneficial from a medicinal point of view as well. Many studies proved that specific metabolites are released only when they interact with other microorganisms in their adjacent environment. This is also proved through chromatography and co-culturing of these microorganisms.

Keywords: Anti-bacterial, Anti-microbial, Co-culturing of microbes, Microbial metabolites, Medicinal benefits.
