When TOAST first loads, it will load to the “home” dashboard that looks like this.

 

Click this button on the dashboard to make your screen bigger.

 

The first icon is a quick explanation on how to send an experiment to the International Space Station and work with NASA, in case you are interested in taking your research to the next level.

 

The second icon is a quick overview of the NASA GeneLab program.  Most of the data that is in the TOAST database is mined from NASA GeneLab.  NASA GeneLab is in charge of collecting and maintaining spaceflight data.

 

The rest of the icons are datasets from individual experiments.  The designs give quick information on the nature of the experiment (spacecraft, plant type, hardware).

 

But if you want a more detailed explanation, click the list view button.

 

The list view button provides a more in-depth explanation of each experiment and dataset.
