Hyperthermophils: can only survive in extreme/high temperatures
Why is it hard for scientists to study hyperthermophile behavior in the laboratory?
a. Hyperthermophiles can survive only at very high temperatures that are difficult to replicate in a lab setting.
b. Hyperthermophiles are physically identical to bacteria, making it hard to identify in a lab setting.
c. Hyperthermophiles have a short life cycle, which makes it hard to study one particular organism.
d. Hyperthermophiles can survive only at very low temperatures, which are difficult to replicate in a lab setting.
e. none of the above
