Navigating freely available software tools for metabolomics analysis

PMCID: 5550549
PMID: 28890673
DOI: 10.1007/s11306-017-1242-7

[…] nificant differences between datasets. Peaks are picked, smoothed and grouped, followed by retention time alignment. Peak quality scores are reported to enable to user to identify high quality peaks. Metabolite Automatic Identification Toolkit (MAIT) (Fernández-Albert et al. ) provides a wrapper of XCMS (Smith et al. ) and CAMERA (Kuhl et al. ) for user-friendly LC–MS data analysis. Additionally s […]

[…] ion mode.Analyses of HPLC-TOF-MS raw data, in terms of peak detection, peak matching, and retention time alignment, were performed using the R packages XCMS (Smith et al., ; Tautenhahn et al., ) and MAIT (Fernandez-Albert et al., ). For determination of the involved parameter the toolbox IPO has been used (Libiseller et al., ). In the course of peak annotation, the intensity threshold was set to […]
