Description: This web page contains an overview of an extremophile experiment associated with the Woodrow Wilson Foundation's Leadership Program for Teachers 1999 Summer Biology Institute titled "Biodiversity";. The experiment focused on trying to isolate extremophilic bacteria from the environment by culturing materials that might provide extreme microhabitats and attempting to grow the organisms in enriched nutrient broth. The website features an overview of the experiment, including background, methods, results, discussion, possible extensions, and classroom applications. The site also contains a link to the program home page, which provides links to further information on the program and a teacher resources page.
