Short Title: 1C, PCOS, and VIIP
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):

Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Test for SNPs of each of 44 major genes (351 SNPs) involved in one-carbon metabolism in astronauts, and relate these to existing biochemical, vision and related medical data.
  2. Gather ethnicity data from the crewmembers, and determine whether ethnicity is predictive of vision issues after long-duration space flight.
  3. Compare biochemical, genetic, and ophthalmological data from PCOS patients and an age-matched control group.
