Exploring the Effects of Spaceflight on Mouse Physiology using the Open Access NASA GeneLab Platform

JoVE Peer-reviewed Scientific Video Journal – Exploring the Effects of Spaceflight on Mouse Physiology using the Open Access NASA GeneLab Platform

The NASA GeneLab platform provides unfettered access to precious omics data from biological spaceflight experiments. This article and video describes how a typical rodent experiment is performed in space, how omics data from these experiments can be accessed through the GeneLab platform, and how to identify key factors in these data. Using this process, any individual can make critical discoveries that could change the design of future space missions and activities.
