The 2020 Petr Sedmera Award
The 2020 Petr Sedmera Award for the best published work in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance knows its winner. The competition is organized by the Czech Spectroscopic Society of Jan Marcus Marci and sponsored by the pharmaceutical company Teva. The awarded paper Quantitative Conformational Analysis of Functionally Important Electrostatic Interactions in the Intrinsically Disordered Region of Delta Subunit of Bacterial RNA Polymerase was published in Journal of the American Chemical Society by Lukáš Žídek and co-workers from CEITEC, Masaryk University. The paper was selected by the award committee as the best one out of 8 submitted publications, all published in highly respected international journals. The award ceremony, originally scheduled for the 2020 NMR Valtice meeting, April 19-22, 2020, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be announced later.
