ISS Microbiome

Micobes live in and around plants and animals

Right: Video introducing the concept of a microbiome, in a 4D environment (3 dimensions of space and the 4th dimension is time).

Below: Collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) has led to the incorporation of the microbiome of ISS being incorporated into the MGnify database. See if you recognize any of the microbes on the space station "dining room table"? Clue: Checkout the taxonomic analysis of "Analysis MGYA00374901" in MGnify database below.
