Sam McCarthy from SUNY Oswego's biological sciences department will speak on “Extremophiles: Pushing Life’s Boundaries.” Extremophiles can thrive in some of the most extreme environmental conditions found on Earth, right at the boundaries of life, and their abilities make them useful for many commercial applications. McCarthy will focus on taking extremophilic archaea and making them “more extreme” by adaptive laboratory evolution, which allows organisms with desirable traits to evolve naturally. Part of SUNY Oswego's Science Today lecture series. Free; parking for those without a campus parking sticker is $1 -- see oswego.edu/parking. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
