Abstract:
    Production of genetically engineered strains which are responsible for the production of Aspirin analogue which we have predicted through insilico study.This analogue work better than aspirin(insilco)
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    As Aspirin is extracted from leaves of the willow tree, and can also be synthesized chemically but these methods are time consuming (As plants take time to grow) and expensive. In contrast microbes are very easy to grow as they multiply quickly and are less expensive.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Aspirin has been used for its health effects for at least 2,400 years. It is used to treat pain, fever, or inflammation. Specific inflammatory conditions in which aspirin is used include Kawasaki disease, pericarditis, and rheumatic fever.Aspirin may also decrease the risk of certain types of cancer
How will the solution works
    Today, Pakistan alone consume 16,000 tons of aspirin tablets a year, equaling 80 million pills, and the spend about $2 billion a year for non-prescription pain relievers, many of which contain aspirin or similar drugs.this cost can be minimized if we use its analogue which is a microbial product.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    This is totally new idea and there are no competitors.
