TICTOC & the future of ASTROagriculture

Targeting Improved Cotton Through Orbital Cultivation: TICTOC

The Gilroy Lab mission patch for our experiment that will launch to the ISS in June, opnom TIC TOC (Targeting Improved Cotton Through Orbital Cultivation.)! Sarah Friedrich (UW-Madison Dept. of Botany) and Dr Sarah Swanson worked together to create our logo. 

Previous Arabidopsis missions and data in TOAST provided insights that enabled project TICTOC

There is a manuscript in preparation and experiments on going in the laboratory. If you'd like to know more about the project Dr Barker recently summarized it in a recent presentation at the first Dekota Space Agriculture Conference (2023).
