Global initiatives are driving the establishment of new laboratories in space, providing new tools and observation angles to life sciences. The application of Omics analysis is very relevant in this context.
The usage of the ICE Cubes service Science Cube by Prof. Borg’s from the University of Malta for Maleth genetic studies, 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 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 biology processes and mechanisms.
The application of Omics analysis in biology experiments is continuing at unabated rates.
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 be at the forefront of high-throughput and computational analysis pipelines, including Omics research. We put technological advances at the service of a more holistic and systems level understanding of the processes and mechanisms underlying biological changes in space, benefitting research and applications on Earth as well.
