See how microbiome research can take us from underground to outer space

In a quest for lifelong learning by literally sampling the world around him, Dr. Christopher Mason, Professor of Computational Genomics at Weill Cornell Medicine, discovers new microbial insights.


Learn how his research journey spans from subway samples to the NASA twin study, necessitating the development of new protocols to draw blood from space and preserve cell viability.

According to Dr Mason, sample collection and preservation is vital to processing in a uniform, reliable fashion.  He uses Thermo Fisher 2D matrix tubes with redundant bar code etched into the tube to ensure nothing is lost.
