Effects of Microgravity And Its Analogs On Microorganisms

Researchers estimate the effects of microgravity and its analogs on microorganisms have been studied for more than 50 years, plausible conflicting and diverse results have frequently been reported in different experiments, especially regarding microbial growth and secondary metabolism. Spaceflight and ground-based microgravity analog experiments have suggested that microgravity can affect microbial growth and metabolism.
