For the first time in history, the astronauts of NASA have arrayed DNA in microgravity. The team members of the ISS recently made the first step in order to make the orbital laboratory a little reliable for its natives. This experiment was originally a test to examine if a MinilON portable DNA cycler starts work in orbits, and they have successfully done it. The results of tested samples on ISS provided that same results compared to the group back on the earth. If they find out more tests then it would provide ability to astronauts to use the cycler or sequencer in order to test microbes found on the surface of ISS.
It would be a little innovativeness to consider the International Space Station as a ground for potential breeding for unwanted creatures, but it would be at an enclosed environment. NASA further said that they have found fungus and it needs to be examined. It means that we should wait for a significant amount of time until team members returns to earth, but having a sequencer in the orbit would allow team members to determine perfectly to those microbes or fungus found on the surface of ISS. This sequencer will also be used to ensure the water repossession system of the station in order to work properly or analyze the results of those experiments without returning back to NASA on the ground. NASA further indicated that the sequencer will be more helpful for the Mars missions in the future.
