SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT:  Extremophile Research Theory and Techniques
Symposium and Workshop

The seventh “Extremophile Research:  Theory and Techniques Workshop and
Symposium” will be offered at the Center of Marine Biotechnology (COMB)
in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor on July 21-24, 2003.

The laboratory-intensive course will cover procedures, methodologies and
up-to-date information about the Archaea, a group of microorganisms
commonly found in what are considered harsh or extreme environments. The
one-day symposium and subsequent three-day workshop provides
introductory and intermediate level instruction in archaeal laboratory
techniques, including growth, biochemistry, and genetics. A basic
knowledge of microbiology and nucleic acid laboratory procedures is
helpful.

Full tuition scholarships will be available to graduate students,
postdoctoral fellows, and faculty from small colleges or universities
pending a decision on our request for funding from the National Science
Foundation. When available, scholarships will be given out on a first
come first served basis so please apply early.  We are also accepting
registrations from industry.

registration information, is available here:
