Astronaut Dr. Peggy Whitson turns the maintenance work area (MWA, blue surface) into a research bench aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Enabled by the miniPCR (Amplyus) and the MinION (Oxford Nanopore Technologies), pictured side-by-side on the MWA, Whitson prepared and sequenced DNA from bacteria collected from, and cultured aboard, the ISS. The agar slide used for bacterial culture was returned to the ground for standard laboratory processing and identification. The identifications obtained aboard the ISS matched those determined on the ground down to the species level, marking the first ever identification of microbes entirely off Earth. View this paper.
