Announcing the 2021 Genes in Space webinar series

The 2021 Genes in Space contest will feature an expanded toolkit for applicants to use in their DNA experiments. In addition to PCR, the BioBits® cell-free system and P51™ molecular fluorescence viewer are being readied for launch to the space station. We will be offering several webinars this winter featuring each of the tools in the Genes in Space toolkit. In these sessions you will learn more about these tools, how they are currently used on Earth, and how you might use them to address a challenge in space exploration. Got questions you'd like us to answer in these webinars?
