Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society.
Hot springs are natural ecosystems where microorganisms have adapted to high temperatures and unique geochemical environments, making them ideal locations for understanding extreme ecosystems. Dr. Brent Peyton, Director of the Thermal Biology Institute at Montana State University, will tell you why thermal features are “target” environments for isolating novel and robust microorganisms for biotechnology and energy applications.
