TOAST tutorial & MetaData Analysis

TOAST links AstroBotany experiments into a interactive relation data exploration ecosystem

The TOAST meta-data app is now loading below (scroll down).

This is meta-data exploration tools is designed to allow you to examine the curated meta-data associated with the spaceflight related experiment. Examine the different factors that may contribute to the gene expression patterns presented in TOAST4.5.

We have used the NASA GeneLab recorded factors as guides then mined the literature and interview the scientists who executed the experiments in order to find links between the experiments with the GeneLab repository.
