AMDIS citations


Promiscuous activities of heterologous enzymes lead to unintended metabolic rerouting in Saccharomyces cerevisiae engineered to assimilate various sugars from renewable biomass

Biotechnol Biofuels
PMCID: 5950193
PMID: 29785207
DOI: 10.1186/s13068-018-1135-7
call_split See protocol

[…] The raw data obtained from GC/MS analysis were pre-processed in automated mass spectral deconvolution and identification system (AMDIS) software [] for peak detection and deconvolution of mass spectra. The pre-processed data were uploaded into SpectConnect (http:/ […]


Rhizosphere Protists Change Metabolite Profiles in Zea mays

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5946010
PMID: 29780370
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00857

[…] me index (RI) was calculated from the added n-alkanes. Metabolites were identified by comparison of RI-values and fragment masses to the Golm metabolome database (; ) using the programs TagFinder and AMDIS (NIST). […]


Unlocking preservation bias in the amber insect fossil record through experimental decay

PLoS One
PMCID: 5886561
PMID: 29621345
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195482
call_split See protocol

[…] ection of a standard mixture containing a series of n-alkanes was used to calibrate retention indices to aid in identifying the peaks. The chromatograms for each sample were imported into the program AMDIS and the major peaks in each chromatogram were identified through a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) MS database search.The chemical characterization of the P. sylvestris and […]


Metabolic profiling of isolated mitochondria and cytoplasm reveals compartment specific metabolic responses

PMCID: 5878833
PMID: 29628813
DOI: 10.1007/s11306-018-1352-x

[…] nd kept at 320 °C for 10 min. A C10–C40 n-alkane standard mixture (Neochema, Bodenheim, Germany) was applied at the beginning for retention index calculation. All GC–MS data files were processed with AMDIS (Version 2.71, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USA) and the web-based tool SpectConnect (Styczynski et al. ) to perform the peak picking, spectral deconvolution […]


Development of quantitative screen for 1550 chemicals with GC MS

Anal Bioanal Chem
PMCID: 5910463
PMID: 29552732
DOI: 10.1007/s00216-018-0997-7

[…] are performed by capturing the full scan ion profile including potentially interfering chemicals. Deconvolution software, such as the Automated Mass Spectral Deconvolution and Identification System (AMDIS, NIST), is available to extract specific signals from complex chromatograms. A challenge with targeted screening is to develop libraries of retention times, mass spectra, and response factors fo […]


Disentangling the role of floral sensory stimuli in pollination networks

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5847531
PMID: 29531220
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03448-w

[…] other traces, diacetone alcohol (CAS: 123-42-2) was the only abundant contaminant.We used Agilent MSD Productivity ChemStation software v.E.02.01 (Agilent Technologies) to retrieve the GC/MS data and AMDIS v.2.62 software for peak deconvolution combined with NIST 05 Mass Spectral Library v.2.0d (NIST Mass Spectrometry Data Center, Gaithersburg, MD, USA) to identify VOCs. Kovats retention index was […]
