A Blog Around The Clock

Laboratory Web Site and Video Awards

You may remember, from several months ago, that Attila started a contest for the best designed lab web page.

Soon, the project became too big for a lone blogger to tackle. Especially after an article about this appeared on the online pages of Nature. So, as Attila announced today, the contest goes Big Time.

The Scientist is now hosting the official contest. Of course, Attila is one of the judges. Several web-pages have already been nominated and now it is your job to think of the best-designed, prettiest, most-functional and most up-to-date laboratory homepages and nominate them for the prize.

Also, spread the word about this.

    Done. I nominated the Bradley lab, for being the first Open Notebook.

    Excellent! Thank you.

    The two I suggested are also big proponents of Open Access – Brembs is on the Ed Board of PLoS (and an author there), while Refinetti is the founder and editor of an OA journal.

    Crap, Jean-Claude is one of the judges, so his site’s not eligible. Rosie Redfield’s already nominated… maybe Cameron Neylon’s cloning site…

    It occurs to me that I don’t know many lab web sites, and that there is no Postgenomic or Technorati for lab sites the way there is for blogs. It shouldn’t be too hard to organize, since many lab sites already use blogs. Even just a list with an associated tag cloud would be good, so that you could browse for labs working on things you’re interested in.

    I was just thinking along these lines yesterday!
