Jürgen Cox, head of the research group „Computational Systems Biochemistry“ at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried near Munich receives the Gilbert S. Omenn Computational Proteomics Award 2019. This award acknowledges the specific achievements of scientists that have developed bioinformatics, computational and statistical methods or software used by the proteomics community. Cox and his team developed the software platforms MaxQuant and Perseus. “The developments in this field are impressive and computational approaches are important to reach the goals in the proteomic analysis. I am very proud to receive the prize”, says Cox. The Prize will be awarded at the US Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) Conference in Washington DC, USA, in March.
