Abstract:
The International Space Station (ISS) will have, upon completion, a large suite of international facilities that can be utilized for plant research from cell and tissue culture to intact plants. Characteristics and capabilities of the various plant related facilities being developed in the United States and by our international partners will be described in the order of their current launch sequence. An overview will also be presented of support equipment and facilities such as the life science glove box and 2.5 meter centrifuge. A critical feature of plant research on ISS will be the ability to have controls as well as conduct long term and repetitive experiments.
