The scientists, led by WSU's Abdelrhman Mohamed, used special electrodes inserted at the edge of the hot springs to coax bacteria out. To do this in an extreme environment like hot springs, Mohamed invented a portable potentiostat. (A potentiostat is an electronic device capable of controlling the electrodes). After 32 days, the team successfully captured the bacteria in their natural environment. The researchers…
