USGS Microbiology Web site Wins 2010 Shoemaker Communication Award

The USGS Interdisciplinary Microbiology Web site facilitates collaboration between scientists and increases the understanding of USGS microbiology to the public. The site is a central place to find the centers, scientists, and research involved in USGS microbiology. In recognition of its valuable information, layout, and design, the Web site won the 2010 Shoemaker Communication Award – an annual communications excellence competition for USGS employees – in the Internet Product category. This site is made possible by the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) and USGS Microbiology Contact Kay Marano Briggs.
