What a tangled web we unweave – deciphering raw proteomics data

Today we will be speaking of proteomics data files and their contents. We will also talk a bit about proteomics file formats, and why they are a mess. In a typical case, you would have been running peptide samples on a mass-spectrometer using a gradient to separate peptides by some physicochemical property so they don’t […]

Making Sense of LC-MS/MS Spectra – Part I

From lots of gibberish to useful data… This post is destined to become the introduction of a new series of glorious blog entries on the subject of LC-MS/MS data analysis.   In this series we would like to talk about proteomics data analysis and the different steps it involves. The series will focus on the […]
