Living and Working: Valuable Spaceflight Data Collaboration Tool

1 min read

The International Space Station is the largest human-made structure in low Earth orbit (LEO) and serves as a space environment research laboratory where astronauts perform experiments in several unique fields including physics, astronomy, and biology. NASA’s Genelab collects valuable spaceflight experiment data for researchers and scientists to learn from this unique environment. GeneLab is an interactive, open-access resource where scientists can upload, download, store, search, share, transfer, and analyze omics data from spaceflight and corresponding analogue experiments. The biological studies conducted on the International Space Station generate critical data that scientists use to determine how terrestrial biology changes as a result of spaceflight.
