Solicitation Number: NNH16ZTT001L
Release Date: Nov 05, 2015
Response Date: Jan 05, 2016
NASA's Space Biology program investigates primary mechanisms behind changes
in living systems due to spaceflight and microgravity in hopes of developing
the foundations for a human presence in space for extended periods in
preparation for exploration.  Another goal is to apply this knowledge and
technology to improve our nation's competitiveness, education, and the
quality of life on Earth.
NASA seeks inputs to this RFI so that it can design ‘omics reference
experiments needed by the Space Life Sciences community. NASA will establish
an internal Science Definition Team (SDT) to use the community inputs
provided by respondents to this RFI (and a subsequent workshop) to design
one or more reference experiments/investigations.  After the experiment, the
raw data will be posted online at the NASA GeneLab data repository website
(http://genelab.nasa.gov/).  It is anticipated that the results will be used
to issue open solicitations for proposals from the science community for
further bioinformatics analysis.
The full text of the RFI and response instructions can be found at:
http://tinyurl.com/NNH16ZTT001L. Responses must be submitted electronically
using the NSPIRES web site. This RFI is open to responses from all parties
including commercial entities, international organizations, academia, NASA
Centers, and other government agencies. The information obtained will be
used by NASA for planning and acquisition strategy development.
NASA will use the information obtained as a result of this RFI on a
non-attribution basis.  Providing data and information that is limited or
restricted for use by NASA for that purpose would be of very little value
and such restricted/limited data/information is not covered under this
request.  No information or questions received will be posted to any website
or public access location.  NASA does not plan to respond to the individual
responses. The Government does not intend to award an award on the basis of
this RFI or to otherwise pay for the information solicited.
