Acting on behalf of the Evaluating Committee we express high recognition to Mr. Yu Xin (Robert) XIA for his paper Effects of Engineered Proline Amino Acids on the Single-Channel Kinetics of a Potassium Channel. Unfortunately, this very valuable and interesting paper is too far from physics and for that it cannot be recognized by award or honourable mention.
