Plants in space: A novel method for fixing plant tissue samples maximizes time, resources, and data

University of Florida researchers are collaborating with NASA to understand plant growth and development in spaceflight. They have developed a single fixation protocol for use in space that allows plant material to be used for multiple experimental applications. The new protocol, described in the August issue of Applications in Plant Sciences, boasts low costs and wide application to any situation where recovery of biological resources is limited.
