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 NGS 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 ISS.
