Emil Paleček (3 October 1930 – 30 October 2018) was a Czech biochemist. He researched how DNA can be used to diagnose genetic diseases. Paleček discovered electrochemistry in nucleic acids. He was Jewish and his father died in the Holocaust.
In 1959, Paleček got a PhD in biochemistry from Masaryk University in Brno, Czechoslovakia (now in the Czech Republic). During the 1960s, Paleček worked at the Biophysical Institute of the Academy of Sciences in Brno.
In 1989, Paleček became a member of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. From 1993–97, he was a member of the Czech Academy of Sciences. In 1994, Paleček was one of the founding members of the Learned Society of the Czech Republic.
