NASA CRISPR-Based Assay Developed for Genome Editing in Space The work aboard the International Space Station may help researchers better understand how conditions in space affect DNA damage and repair pathways. Molecular Changes Wrought by Spaceflight Explored in Newly Published Studies Twenty-nine new studies highlight how time in space affects the human body, including effects on telomeres, mitochondria, and more. NASA Twins Study Finds Space-Linked Changes to Gene Expression, Telomere Length The researchers reported that most of these changes, though not all, reverted to normal upon the astronaut's return to Earth. NASA-Led Team Examines Mycobiome of Environment Mimicking Space Habitats Through metagenomic and other analysis, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory-led team found that the fungal diversity of the habitat changed as people lived there. GWU Researcher Enlists NASA JPL to Standardize Cancer Genomics Terms Premium NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is providing informatics services for an NCI-funded project to standardize cancer genomics ontologies.

Preprints OK to Mention Again Nature News reports the Australian Research Council has changed its new policy and now allows preprints to be cited in grant applications. Hundreds of Millions More to Share The US plans to purchase and donate 500 million additional SARS-CoV-2 vaccine doses, according to the Washington Post.
