Space biology and biotechnology
Study of correlations between parameters of adaptability of populations Drosophila melanogaster and their genetic structure, as well as search for identification criteria of living organisms maintaining a maximum possible resistance to space flight environment.
- Identifying an integral structure of genotype of test objects - populations of fruit fly Drosophila melanogaser ;
- Comparing the genetic characteristics obtained with the results of investigating fruit fly capability to endure space flights.
Science Hardware Used:
- Drozofila kits
Object under study is fruit fly Drosophila melanogaser.
Flight Equipment Used:
Search for genetic criteria for revealing living organisms with a maximum possible resistance extreme conditions of a prolonged space flight.
- Drozofila kits;
- photographic and filming data;
- data generated by onboard temperature and humidity sensors placed nearby the kit during conduct of the experiment.
