A specific area of future expansion for Astrogenetix will be biological manufacturing in microgravity. Understanding that organisms behave differently in microgravity has led several NASA-funded researchers to hypothesize the capability to expand our methodology for biopharmaceutical manufacturing (or industrial bio-manufacturing) significantly.
It has been well documented that many organisms grown in space exhibit a gambit of altered expression profiles. By exploiting these unique characteristics, we seek to expand terrestrial bio-manufacturing processes significantly.
We are currently seeking out processing systems and model bio-manufacturing processes that exhibit the potential to improve in the microgravity environment of space.
