To determine the effect of orbital flight environment on the growth, genetic, and physiological properties of the lactolen producer strain
Information PendingEarth Applications
Returned to Earth are Bioekologia cases and photographic materials taken during the experiment.Operational Protocols
To develop exposure conditions for the cultures of Lactobacillus delbruecki subspecies Bulgfricus LH8 strain producing lactolen. Obtaining recombinant strains of producers of bioactive substances with improved properties.
The obtained material will be used for ground section of the producer strains with improved properties (increased lactolen yield).
