Previous ISS Missions
Compare specifics of heterologous expression of HbsAg gen of hepatitis B virus in yeasts S.cerevisiae under microgravity and gravity conditions and establish synthesis optimization techniques.
Container, Vial with an ampoule with lyophilized cultures, Tube with biosample vials, Temperature data logger.
Produce a clone collection of producer strain with heritable deviations in HbsAg gen expression level. Perform a genetic analysis and restriction mapping of plasmids and mutant clones.
Obtaining maximum complete potential characteristics of heterologous expression of HbsAg gen of hepatitis B virus in yeasts S.cerevisiae. Thereafter new principles of increasing producers? efficiency will be developed.
