GeneLab Chats Interviews Dr Chandran Sabanayagam About His Latest Publication

Title slide from GeneLab Chats

Welcome to the "GeneLab Chats" series, a platform designed for insightful discussions with authors of GeneLab-enabled publications. Within the confines of this succinct interview format, GeneLab engages in conversations with these accomplished researchers, aiming to discern the comprehensive scope of their publications and shed light on the pivotal role played by the GeneLab data system in enabling their research endeavors. In this particular segment, we turn our attention to a noteworthy publication from Dr. Sabanayagam, affiliated with the Delaware Biotechnology Institute at the University of Delaware.

As human exploration of space gains momentum, invertebrate model organisms, exemplified by C. elegans, emerge as indispensable contributors to our understanding of the effects of space flight on human physiology. The publication titled "Transcriptomic Signature of the Simulated Microgravity Response in Caenorhabditis elegans and Comparison to Spaceflight Experiments," authored by Dr. Sabanayagam and esteemed colleagues, undertakes a comparative transcriptomic analysis of the effects of simulated microgravity and the sustained impacts after return to ground conditions on C. elegans using data from four Open Science datasets (OSD-41, OSD-42, OSD-112, OSD-113).

In a recent discourse, GeneLab had the privilege of engaging with Dr. Sabanayagam, delving into the intricacies of this significant work. The ensuing dialogue underscores the instrumental role played by Open Science data systems and collaborative efforts within Analysis Working Groups (AWGs) in enhancing the scientific impact of this publication.
