Project Title: 
Effect of Gravity on Gene Expression

Osteoblasts flown on previous orbital missions show evidence that microgravity affects cell differentiation and gene expression. These researchers utilize next-generation sequencing to evaluate changes in trascriptome expression and H-1 NMR to evaluate metabolomic. Osteoblast cell -omic response to simulated microgravity in the group's laboratory will be compared to cells cultured aboard the International Space Station.
