Space Omics - the frontier technology

Global initiatives are driving the establishment of new laboratories and research platforms in space, providing new tools and observation angles to life sciences.

Through the usage of the ICE Cubes’ Science Cube for the Maleth missions on genetic studies, Prof. Borg (University of Malta) has contributed to cutting-edge research featured in Cell Press, as well as ESA’s Space Omics Topical Team report.

The efforts made by the world’s major space agencies are today being expanded by commercial spaceflight missions, supporting R&D activities that unravel new biological phenomena and widen the knowledge and understanding of the fundaments and applications of biological processes and mechanisms. In this context, the application of Omics analysis can boost our understanding of life in a broader context.

Our ICE Cubes Service is supporting this rapid progress and is proud to have assisted the research of Prof. Joseph Borg’s team from the University of Malta. The Omics data and results stemming from the Maleth space research missions are published in Cell Press, and are also featured in the final report of ESA’s Space Omics Topical Team.

The ICE Cubes Service is working hard to push towards high-throughput and computational analysis pipelines, including Omics research. We put technological advances at the service of a more holistic understanding of the processes and mechanisms underlying biological behaviour and changes in space, also benefitting research and applications on Earth.
