Previous ISS Missions
Provision of the ground reproduction and the result of bacteriophages on sensitive cultures. Test of bacteriophages delivery and exposure conditions in a space flight. Investigation of biological and genetical characteristics of bacteriophages. Provision of the clone collection with heritable deviations in morphological characteristics. Production of strains with a new spectrum of lytic effect.
Bacteriofage will use the Case Bioecologia and Thermostat Cryogem-03.
Bacteriophages with biological and physical and chemical characteristics changed will be used for medical and diagnostic purposes as well as for genetic investigations.^ back to top
