Something like the following would be appreciated:

We acknowledge the use of the BIOSCI electronic newsgroup network,
supported in Europe by the Seqnet facility at Daresbury, U.K. and in
the U.S. by the National Science Foundation with contributions from
DOE and NIH.

I'd also appreciate a reprint or preprint, if available, to include
with my progress report to NSF later this year.  I include my regular
mailing address below.

I should also thank you for offering to do this.  BIOSCI has been
running for many years now, and this is the first such offer that I
have *ever* received.  Given the volume on the methods newsgroup alone
at a minimum, I am surprised that more people have not found it to be
of use ;-).  If this was standard practice, then I would have had an
answer to the Science person who challenged me to document cases of
BIOSCI contributing to significant research.
