The significance and uniqueness of the award was highlighted also by Pavel Dvořák of the Department of Experimental Biology (Masaryk university, Faculty of Science), who oversaw the research. “We are happy that even at this type of meeting, biotechnology topics have gained ground. It suggests that microbial biotechnology and synthetic biology are on the rise and that, in the most developed countries, these subjects are already contributing to improving people’s quality of life and the environment. We would like these topics to resonate in the Czech Republic too, and I believe that Bára’s success will contribute to this. For Bára and our entire workplace, this is a remarkable success and a motivation for our future work”.
