AlloSource Scientists Contribute to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Study on Antimicrobial Survivability on the International Space Station

Centennial, Colo. — December 10, 2018 — AlloSource, an organization dedicated to advancing the science and use of transplantable allogeneic cells and tissue, served as a contributing science team to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s (JPL) scientific study on further antimicrobial survivability on the International Space Station (ISS). The science and results were highlighted in the recently published article titled “Multi-drug resistant Enterobacter bugandensis species isolated from the International Space Station and comparative genomic analyses with human pathogenic strains” in BMC Microbiology. As a follow-up to a previous study, which used molecular methods to characterize genes from ISS environmental samples, this…
