Learn how microorganisms thrive in extreme radiation environments, temperatures and contaminated environments, and at varying pH and salt levels. Beyond radiation resistance, find out how microorganisms circumvent biocidal activities. Since there is limited research on these radiation tolerant and disinfection resistant microorganisms, we will examine major challenges that lie ahead.
