Investigate the protein growth processes in microgravity
condition using the counter-diffusion technique.
- To measure the parameters of the growing protein
- To measure the composition changes (in depletion
zone) of liquid around the growing protein crystals
- To use holographic microscope for optical monitoring
of the crystal growth mechanisms in microgravity
Biological materials to be returned to the ground
from the ISS, as well as experiment video recording.
