Support science communication

Scientific Blogging is an interesting blogging model. Anyone can start up a blog, but only bloggers that provide quality, accurate posts are selected to be columnists. This is quite different from the invitation-only model used by ScienceBlogs. I like the former because it gives everyone the opportunity to share their knowledge in a public forum. I also like them because they encourage graduate students to start blogging by holding blogging contests!

The Spring 2010 entries have been narrowed down to eight finalists – one of which was submitted by yours truly. GMOs could render important antibiotics worthless is consistently one of Biofortified’s most read posts since it went up on March 15.

I hope you’ll read the entries and consider voting for any of these contributions from graduate students. Voting is open from April 1 to April 20. Each person can vote one time every day, using the button to the right of the post’s title. Click the banner below to see a list of all of the finalists.
