- During the VIABLE ISS project (eValuatIon And monitoring of microBiofiLms insidE International Space Station), water samples subjected to two different silver treatments were sent and kept on board the International Space Station (ISS) from 2011 to 2016. In this note we report data on the viable and total bacterial load and on the composition of the microbial communities of the VIABLE ISS samples.
