This website is operated by the Bangor Acidophile Research Team (BART), which is based in the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) at the University of Wales. The group studies extremophiles, with a particular emphasis on highly acidic habitats. Their research is focused on the microbiology and molecular biology of these environments and on the development of bioengineering solutions for remediating acid mine drainage and industrial wastewaters. Of particular interest to users is a research paper providing an overview of the application of microbes for remediating acid mine drainage and industrial waters. Additionally, there is a link to a listing of scientific publications by this research team and descriptions of ongoing research projects.
