Interested in Analyzing Spaceflight Omics Data?
GeneLab will be hosting students for 10 weeks during the summer of 2018 at NASA Ames Research Center. Interns will work with GeneLab and Analysis Working Group scientists, as well as other interns, to develop computational pipelines for the analysis of biological data housed within GeneLab. Interns will utilize these within the GeneLab analysis framework to make discoveries about how biological systems react to spaceflight. For more information, go to: https://genelab.nasa.gov/awg/
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). The LSDA contains information, data, and experimental results from spaceflight and ground experiments involving humans, plants, animals, cells, and microbes dating back to the 1961 Mercury Project. Also, it provides the link to the data base listing all of the available specimens and the site for submitting requests, including the sample request instructions.

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.
