New method identifies up to twice as many proteins, peptides in mass spectrometry data

An team of researchers developed a method that identifies up to twice as many proteins and peptides in mass spectrometry data than conventional approaches. The method can be applied to a range of fields, including clinical settings and fundamental biology research for cancer and other diseases. The key to the method’s improved performance is its ability to compare data to so-called spectral libraries — a pattern-matching exercise — rather than individual spectra or a database of sequences. —> Read More
