Science selects 'Ask a Biologist' website to win SPORE award
Date:11/25/2010

ation as though they were using sophisticated microscopes.

Kazilek says he cherishes the input that users provide. "If you can get the public to engage with you, that's like gold," he says.

The volunteers who answer questions for "Ask a Biologist" are coming from an expanded pool of sources as part of ongoing development of the site. Originally, they were primarily from ASU's School of Life Sciences, but they now include, for instance, an MIT graduate student and a biologist in France. At the same time, the site and all of its materials are being translated into French and Spanish, also by volunteers.

Kazilek thinks the idea of Ask a Biologist is ripe for a kind of no-cost "franchising," and he hopes that receiving the SPORE award and publishing in Science could encourage that.

"I like the idea of people from other institutions seeing it," he says.
