Bioinformatics and Mass Spectrometry for Metabolite Profiling and -Identification


Mass spectrometry is an important analytical technology in metabolite profiling. The first steps in the pipeline are signal processing and peak picking tasks. We are developing and enhancing several Bioconductor packages. Further characterization uses Tandem-MS libraries, spectral search in compound libraries with MetFrag, and a combination thereof.

Computational Mass Spectrometry is starting to deliver powerful tools for the analysis of mass spectra. For training and validation, large gold standards are a must, that's why we need Open Data.
