NMR Spectroscopy

About / Overview

The mission of the NJ-ACS NMR TG is to bring together scientists who use nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) as a research tool from academia and industry, students of NMR, as well as vendors of NMR-related products. It organizes monthly meetings that consist of a social hour, a buffet dinner, followed by a presentation by an invited speaker.

From time to time, the NMR Topical Group hosts scientific symposia on topics related to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). These events serve as excellent venues for networking within the local scientific community. Also, through its activities, the NMR Topical Group raises public awareness of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and its service to the scientific community.

The NMR Spectroscopy Topical Group operates under the auspices of the North Jersey Section of the American Chemical Society (NJ-ACS), which is a non-profit organization that qualifies for tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code.

Abstract

NMR spectroscopy is a powerful technique for molecular studies. In biomolecular research, it offers a wide range of unique approaches, from analyzing small compounds to investigating macromolecules, and from examining purified samples to studying complex mixtures. NMR analysis is primarily conducted in dry laboratory settings. Once the sample is prepared and inserted into the spectrometer, nearly all processes are performed using computers. When it comes to spectral analysis of biomacromolecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids, Sparky has been the gold standard program for a few decades. Donald Kneller from the Tack Kuntz group and Tom Goddard from the Tom Ferrin group were early contributors to UCSF-Sparky in the 90s. I took over from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and developed NMRFAM-Sparky at the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison (NMRFAM) until 2020 before I moved to the University of Colorado Denver. Since then, my group has developed the new program, POKY. POKY succeeds all the previous capabilities while provides new and enhanced features, leveraging the recent AI revolution. It is highly automated and efficient, covering assignment, peak picking, relaxation, dynamics, metabolomics, and small compound analysis. Additionally, POKY incorporates self-teaching capabilities. We have identified six different challenges, which we address through four distinct user interfaces. The POKY software suite is readily accessible at https://poky.clas.ucdenver.edu, introducing in a new era of NMR spectroscopy software that combines traditional excellence with cutting-edge AI technology.
