Microbial Observatory (ISS-MO): Study of BSL-2 bacterial isolates from the International Space Station

Metadata Updated: May 1, 2019

In an on-going Microbial Observatory experimental investigation on the International Space Station (ISS) multiple bacterial isolates of Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) were isolated and identified. The antibiotic susceptibility pattern was tested in these BSL-2 isolates for the following antibiotics: cefazolin ciprofloxacin cefoxitin erythromycin gentamycin oxacillin penicillin rifampin tobramycin and many of the BSL-2 isolates showed multiple drug resistance. Among these isolates 21 strains were chosen for whole genome sequencing (WGS) for a possible lead to develop appropriate countermeasures. In addition the genomic data would enable to determine the influence of microgravity on the pathogenicity and virulence in the BSL-2 microorganisms.
