Explore how we can use these fascinating organisms to better understand changes in the health of present, past, and future aquatic environments, and how we think these critters survive "microenvironmental disasters." Come get your hands dirty as you try to find MTB in sediments from the Great Salt Lake. Learn how these organisms go from our modern environments to being preserved in the rock record and some of the implications of this. Join Courtney and learn about the wonderful, intimate world of magnetotactic bacteria.
