The Josef Hlávka Award for talented students was presented to Simeon Borko from FIT


One of this year's winners presented with the Josef Hlávka Award for talented students was Simeon Borko from FIT. He received the award for his work on the EnzymeMiner project which he described in his Bachelor's thesis and in a publication in the international journal Nucleic Acids Research. EnzymeMiner is a computational tool that enables automated mining and annotation of diverse enzyme sequences and thus serves as an aid in finding suitable enzymes for research and industry. The prestigious award of the Nadání Josefa, Marie a Zdeňky Hlávkových (Foundation of Josef, Marie and Zdeňka Hlávka) is presented annually to talented students and graduates or young researchers under the age of 33. The award is regularly presented on the eve of the Velvet Revolution anniversary at Josef Hlávka Chateau in Lužany u Přeštic, but this year the ceremony did not take place due to the epidemic.
