From chromatogram to analyte to metabolite. How to pick horses for courses from the massive web resources for mass spectral plant metabolomics

PMCID: 5499862
PMID: 28520864
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix037

[…] spectra, annotate isotopes and adducts, and propose compound mass as an extension to XCMS. It is easy to use in combination with this software and provides a significant reduction on data complexity. AStream [] is another R package very similar to CAMERA but using a simpler algorithm for grouping the peaks. ALLocator [] is a web-based workflow that applies centwave from XCMS for feature detection, […]


Prediction, Detection, and Validation of Isotope Clusters in Mass Spectrometry Data

PMCID: 5192443
PMID: 27775610
DOI: 10.3390/metabo6040037

[…] We use the R package AStream version 2.0 [] for the detection of isotope clusters. We import the peaks which have been detected using xcms into the AStream datalist structure. We apply the function data.norm with the para […]


Analytical Methods in Untargeted Metabolomics: State of the Art in 2015

Front Bioeng Biotechnol
PMCID: 4350445
PMID: 25798438
DOI: 10.3389/fbioe.2015.00023

[…] erent ionization adducts (H+, Na+, K+, …). This multiplicity often results in a high number of false positive identifications. In order to reduce false positives, several methods have been developed. AStream and Camera are methods designed to identify isotopic and adduct patterns in order to reduce data complexity in MS experiments (Alonso et al., ; Kuhl et al., ). Using these approaches, the chem […]


Computational mass spectrometry for small molecules

J Cheminform
PMCID: 3648359
PMID: 23453222
DOI: 10.1186/1758-2946-5-12

[…] It also allows for the correction of mass calibration gaps [] caused by regular switches between the analyte and a standard reference compound. XCMS Online[] is the web-based version of the software. AStream[] enables the detection of outliers and redundant peaks by intensity correlation and retention time, as well as isotope detection. MetSign[] provides several bioinformatics tools for raw data […]


A Guideline to Univariate Statistical Analysis for LC/MS Based Untargeted Metabolomics Derived Data

PMCID: 3901240
PMID: 24957762
DOI: 10.3390/metabo2040775

[…] ent detection of adducts (Na+, K+, NH3, etc), isotopes, or doubly charged ions that greatly inflate the number of detected peaks. Several recently launched open-source algorithms such as CAMERA [] or AStream [], and commercially available software such as Mass Hunter (Agilent Technologies) or Sieve (Thermo Scientific), are capable of filtering redundancy by annotating isotopes and adduct peaks, an […]
