PMID: 26674602
DOI: 10.1038/srep18311

[…] were analyzed using an ltq orbitrap xl mass spectrometer (thermo scientific, san jose, ca). mass spectra were searched using two different search algorithms, sequest (bioworks version 3.31 sp1) and inspect (version 20070905), with the rat refseq database (national center for biotechnology information, march, 2010, 30734 entries) which also included a list of common contaminating proteins […]

[…] in the metaproteomic sample. many peptide search engines have been developed for this purpose in the proteomics field, including commonly used tools such as mascot [], sequest [], x!tandem [], inspect [] and msgf+ []. their applications in metaproteomics rely on the pre-assembly of a protein database. early metaproteomic studies used the collection of proteins encoded by fully sequenced […]
