Department of Botany and Plant Pathology researchers Dr. Parul Gupta and Prof. Pankaj Jaiswal were invited to speak at the annual 2020 conference of the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR). Dr. Gupta presented her work on "Alternative splicing and transcriptome modulation under Space flight response in Arabidopsis thaliana". Prof. Jaiswal gave a talk in the GeneLab and Systems Biology session, where he talked about the NASA GeneLab's Plant Analysis Working Group (PlantAWG) activities including insights and recommendations on hardware, biological insights and standardization metrics for conducting plant biology research in space. The findings of the group are expected to help us understand plant development, physiology and performance in response to microgravity.
