Thermal Biology Institute (TBI)

Bozeman, Montana - United States

Thermal Biology Institute at Montana State University. Established in 1999, the Thermal Biology Institute is a multidisciplinary team of scientists forging a new path in scientific discovery focused on the unique thermal environments within Yellowstone National Park. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem boasts a vast scale and diversity of life.

TBI is currently composed of fifteen faculty representing expertise in biochemistry, geochemistry, microbiology, virology, mycology, ecology, plant physiology, and environmental physics. In addition to an emphasis on multidisciplinary research, TBI promotes interdisciplinary learning through a strong educational component that incorporates undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral training.

The long-term goal of TBI is to understand how organisms respond and adapt to the unique physical and chemical features of geothermal environments. We are committed to furthering scientific understandings of the extreme limits of life on our planet, and working to ensure a sustainable future for research and outreach focused on the geothermal features of Yellowstone National Park.

Institute for Theoretical Biology (ITB)
Germany

Over the last decades, biology has developed from a mainly descriptive to a more analytical science. New connections with physics, chemistry, mathematics, and medicine have been forged, while theoretical biology has become a discipline in its own right. At German universities, however, centers for research and teaching in the theoretical biosciences are still rare. To help fill this void, the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and T
