    Call for EPIC-XS proposals was closed on Dec 31, 2019. Get ready for next round which closes on March 31, 2020! Submit via the online submission system.

  • 2019/11/12:

    We are looking for post-doc and PhD to join our team and work on various projects using structural mass spectrometry! Inquiries should be addressed to Petr Novak.

  • 2019/03/27:

    We are part of another Horizon 2020 project EPIC-XS (reg. no 823839) focused on the cutting edge proteomic techniques. This project provides Trans-National Access and also focuses on the development of the techniques.

  • 2018/01/03:

    Our lab is a part of Horizon 2020 project EU FT-ICR MS (reg. no 731077). Through this project you can access our expertise as well as other participating FT-ICR labs. Check Trans-National Acess web section for more details. Also, various FT-ICR focused courses and schools are organized by the labs participating in the project.

  • 2017/12/20:

    Bachelor and master theses are available in the lab. Areas of structrual biology, cutting edge mass spectrometry and cell signalling are awaiting new students. Check the tab Teaching.



Our new computational platform for biomolecular language processing called MatrixMotif is now available for download.


Petr Novak became the chair of the Czech Proteomics Society. Congratulations! :)

Chromatin Proteomics Workshop coorganized by EPIC-XS H2020 consortium will be on Sep 22-27, 2019 in Greece. Deadline (Jul 29) is approaching!.


Two new papers dealing with HDX-MS are out. In one we contributed to very important community wide guidelines paper in Nat. Methods - Recommendations for performing, interpreting and reporting hydrogen deuterium exchange mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) experiments. Antoher one is a joint Anal. Chem. paper with Kasper Rand's lab on HDX-compatible digestion of membrane proteins.


Joint paper with Valasek's lab describing how chemical cross-linking helps in structural characterization of 40S ribosomal subunit interacting with eIFs is now available in Nucleic Acid Research.


Short course on High Resolution Tandem Mass Spectrometry of Biomolecules will be organized by the EU_FT-ICR_MS H2020 consortium. Save the date and place: Aug 21-23, 2019, Warwick. Register here.


Few years ago, we helped Petrak's lab with the development of transmembrane proteome analysis. We are happy that Jirka's team is pushing it further and even happier we still keep in touch as this resulted in another nice J Proteomics paper.


Deadline for the first round of Transnational access proposal submission to EPIC-XS is apporaching (30th June 2019).


Congratulations to our Bc students (Zuzka, Verča, Týna, Kamila and Jana) on successful defense of their Bc theses.


Congratulations to Lucka Wallenfels (Hernychová) on successful defense of her PhD thesis and other happy life events. All the best in the future Lucka!.


Attempts to fully uderstand and somehow unify chemical cross-linking pushed further through interlaboratory comparion in which we participated. Read more in this community-wide Analytical Chemistry paper.
