Analytical challenges of untargeted GC MS based metabolomics and the critical issues in selecting the data processing strategy

PMCID: 5553085
PMID: 28868138
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.12777.r23714

[…] was, however, far from perfect. Nevertheless, the interface of Profinder permitted a user-friendly visual inspection and manual correction that other similar software tools (including MS-DIAL, eRah, ADAP-GC, metaMS and MassOmics) did not provide. By manually correcting the inconsistency of data extraction (carefully selecting the exact region of the corresponding peak), an error-free data extract […]

Essential functions linked with structural disorder in organisms of minimal genome

Biol Direct
PMCID: 5016991
PMID: 27608806
DOI: 10.1186/s13062-016-0149-y

[…] y the proteins of a respective plasmid. Although there are mistakes that are easy to identify and filter out, there are also less shouting annotation mistakes that would not necessarily pop up in the automated data analysis pipeline used here, so we decided to use the smaller but better annotated, more trustworthy CMT15 dataset. For the proteomes that we use, the genes and proteins are also well a […]


Looking for a Signal in the Noise: Revisiting Obesity and the Microbiome

PMCID: 4999546
PMID: 27555308
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.01018-16

[…] l of the data sets and relied heavily on the availability of public data and access to metadata that included variables beyond the needs of the original study. To execute this analysis, we created an automated data analysis pipeline, which can be easily updated to add additional studies as they become available ( Similarly, it would be possible […]


Discovery of A type procyanidin dimers in yellow raspberries by untargeted metabolomics and correlation based data analysis

PMCID: 5047924
PMID: 27547172
DOI: 10.1007/s11306-016-1090-x

[…] acid. This assumption as well as the pseudospectra obtained using the semiautomatic method, was further validated by MS/MS of the heavier ions.Without the use of untargeted metabolomics and a proper automated data analysis pipeline it would be almost impossible to find these compounds, which are not present in massive amounts among all the other features. The fact that the compounds have a relati […]


Analysis of Reverse Phase Protein Array Data: From Experimental Design towards Targeted Biomarker Discovery

PMCID: 4996411
PMID: 27600238

[…] PA slides.A considerable disadvantage of the visual inspection is a high degree of examiner variability that might produce inconsistent results. Ju and coauthors tackled this problem by setting up an automated data analysis pipeline []. Inspection of RPPA images relies on a generalized linear model as a logit to a logistic function returning a likelihood factor that represents slide quality. Evalu […]
