Abstract : The objectives of the course were to provide participants with both a perspective of, and experience in, isolating, identifying, and assessing the potential activities of the diverse bacterial populations that are present in a variety of natural habitats and the roles these organisms play in determining and maintaining those habitats. The applied (industrial, biotechnological) potential of (often) poorly studied and characterized members of natural populations was noted as was also the utility of modern molecular biological approaches for identifying non-cultured microbiota in different habitats.
