Genes in Space-3 successfully identifies unknown microbes in space

The Genes in Space-3 team turned a possibility into reality in 2017, when it completed the first-ever sample-to-sequence process entirely aboard the space station.

Bacteria behave differently on International Space Station

Gene expression data suggest that bacteria experience reduced glucose uptake and increased extracellular acidity in E. coli in space.

Bacteria can grow under extreme gravity: study

( -- A new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that bacteria is capable of growing under gravity more than 400,000 times that of Earth and gives evidence that the theory of panspermia could be possible.

Choosing your neighbors: scientists see how microbes relate in space

It is now possible to see up to 28 differently labeled microbes in a single field of view, due to a new microscopy technique.
