Kate Rubins

NASA Astronaut / Molecular Biologist

Rubins completed her first spaceflight in 2016 on Expedition 48/49. She was the first person to sequence DNA in space, eventually sequencing over 2 billion base pairs of DNA during a series of experiments to analyze sequencing in microgravity. Dr. Rubins also grew heart cells (cardiomyocytes) in cell culture, and performed quantitative, real-time PCR and microbiome experiments on orbit.
