Category 1: Best Structural Identification on Natural Products

Dejan Nikolic from the College of Pharmacy, University of Illinois at Chicago won this category with 15 wins, using a manual approach, closely followed by Team Vaniya (UC Davis and Riken CSRS) with 14 wins. Third place goes to Tobias Kind from UC Davis with 12 wins.

Category 2: Best Automatic Structural Identification - In Silico Fragmentation Only

Category 2 was won by Team Brouard (Aalto University/FSU Jena) using “IOKR” with 86 gold (wins), closely followed by Team Dührkop (also FSU Jena/Aalto University) with 82 gold medals using CSI:FingerID. Team Vaniya was third with 70 gold. The Category 2 results were very sensitive to the method of declaring the winner - the summary statistics show how close this category was in different aspects!

Category 3: Best Automatic Structural Identification - Full Information

Team Kind (UC Davis and Riken CSRS) won Category 3 with 159 gold, using MS-Finder and various metadata. Felicity Allen and team (University of Alberta) came a very close second with 156 gold using CFM-ID and a database score. This is an amazingly close result considering the freedom given in this category!

The organising team would like to thank all participants for their contributions to the challenges this year and the many discussions on how to annotate and identify small molecules.
