Yes,  you are reading correctly. According to BBC news, scientists have sequenced DNA in space. Kate Rubins, an astronaut for NASA, was the one to make this amazing discovery. In the International Space Station (ISS) there is a machine called the Minion (made by the UK) which is there to help determine what illness might be up there with them.

This particular experiment was set up to see what to do in certain conditions. While this was going on in the space station, down on Earth, scientists were also pulling some of their own experiments, finding out the small differences, and seeing how they worked. In the space station, illnesses are more isolated, so if they are able to see the sequence change and determine what may be happening, people on the ground will be able to take action.
