THIRD ANNOUNCEMENT:  Extremophile Research--Theory and Techniques 
The American Type Culture Collection, in collaboration with the National
Science Foundation, George Mason University and the University of Maryland's
Center of Marine Biotechnology, is sponsoring the fifth annual "Extremophile
Research: Theory and Techniques" symposium and workshop.  To be held July
23-26, 2001, at the Columbus Center in Baltimore, MD,  this course provides
introductory and intermediate level instruction in extremophile laboratory
techniques, including growth, biochemistry and genetics, concentrating on
the methanogenic, (hyper)thermophilic and halophilic Archaea. 
For information about the course and for a listing of symposium and workshop
schedules please visit http://www.ib3.gmu.edu/educate/extreme/extremo.html. 
Funding from the National Science Foundation provides a limited number of
stipends for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty from small
colleges and universities, and are awarded on a first-come, first-serve
basis so early application is desirable.  At this time we have space for
three or four more individuals and three or four stipends are also
available. 
Please direct requests for information to Ms. Glenda Wilson
(gwilson1 at gmu.edu) or myself. 
Thank you. 
Sincerely, 
Harold J. Schreier
