Welcome to NASA GeneLab – the first comprehensive omics database for space-related research from which an investigator can generate hypotheses to direct future experiments, utilizing both ground and space biological radiation data.
Afshin Beheshti, PhD, a bioinformatician and data analyst on NASA’s GeneLab Project, gives an overview of GeneLab’s new platform, future development, and analyzed spaceflight omics data to the Broad Institute.

Would you like to conduct an experiment using specimens from spaceflight? The NASA Biospecimen Sharing Program allows researchers to request archived specimens from past spaceflight and ground experiments for their own research investigations.
Information about the experiments conducted to collect these specimens and the samples available for biospecimen sharing can be found at the NASA Life Sciences Data Archive (LSDA).
To explore the LSDA: https://lsda.jsc.nasa.gov/

The space station, including its large solar arrays, spans the area of a U.S. football field, including the end zones, and weighs 924,739 pounds. The complex now has more livable room than a conventional six-bedroom house, and has two bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.
