Task Description: We propose to examine the population dynamics and community interactions of naturally co-adapted soil microbial consortia using multi-omics analysis, correlative molecular networking and metagenomics-based metabolic modeling, and compare results between the International Space Station (ISS) and ground control at Kennedy Space Center (KSC). We hypothesize that the selection pressure (altered atmospheric gas composition, microgravity, and increased radiation) imposed by the space-station environment will alter both the microbial community population dynamics and the metabolic interactions between specific microbial community members.
