The Norwegian School of Veterinary Science hosted µG-omics ESA ENFORM Minisymposium

The Norwegian Zebrafish Platform hosted a ESA ENFORM minisymposium on the topic Model fish in microgravity µG-omics at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science 19-20 of February.

The meeting had mostly international participants and had focus on obtained results, future experiments and funding possibilities regarding model fish in microgravity environment. The consortium aims at sending zebrafish in space in order to study microgravity effects on gene expression related to bone metabolism and other physiological pathways.
