The main goal of this study is to generate radiation specific miRNA expression signatures from cultured cells and whole blood samples of human and mouse origin. The scope of the study includes evaluation of these signatures for use in two modalities: first, as a biomarker for space and occupational radiation exposure and second, as a tool for better understanding of the functional changes in biology induced by radiation.
