Micro-4 is a collaboration with BioServe Space Technologies. The study uses special genetically engineered yeast cells to understand how they respond to the physical effects of microgravity to determine the specific strain optimal for spaceflight. Results from this study allow researchers to gain a global perspective on the genes that play a role in survival under microgravity conditions and will allow for a more thorough understanding of the effects of microgravity on living systems.
