Omics is a rapidly evolving, multi-disciplinary, and emerging field that encompasses genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. Each of these fields offers the possibility to understand and view biology from a global perspective in a way that was previously unthinkable.



​The SpaceOMIX II mission will continue on the steps achieved and learned following the first SpaceOMIX mission and will focus on blood omics and space-borne anemia. A full genetic study of how erythropoiesis adapts to microgravity and higher levels of radiation will follow.

Experiment Description

NASA GeneLab

GeneLab is an open-access, collaborative analysis platform for space bioscience research. GeneLab aims to maximize the research resulting from experiments aboard the International Space Station by collecting and providing access to data from genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomics studies aboard ISS.

Aims & Objectives

Launch Date 2022

ISS Science for Everyone

In collaboration with the science community, GeneLab helped launch the International Standards for Space Omics Processing (ISSOP) consortium. The ISSOP is a global consortium of scientists from around the world to develop, share, and encourage sample processing standardization and metadata normalization of spaceflight omics experiments.

The effects of spaceflight, microgravity and solar radiation are pervasive and wide ranging. We utilize the ISS and take advantage of the unique space environment to make advances in a wide range of disciplines in not only life sciences, but also physical sciences, technology development, remote sensing, and education.
