Dispec: A Novel Peptide Scoring Algorithm Based on Peptide Matching Discriminability

PLoS One
PMCID: 3652849
PMID: 23675420
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0062724

[…] In some algorithms, e.g. pNovo, MassWiz and DeltAMT , , , the m/z error between the experimental peaks and the theoretical peaks was considered when calculating similarity score. Some studies , showed that the m/z error distributio […]


Learning from Decoys to Improve the Sensitivity and Specificity of Proteomics Database Search Results

PLoS One
PMCID: 3506577

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0050651
call_split See protocol

[…] aken from 18 protein mixture Seattle Proteome Center ( ISB standard mix as described in Klimek et al. was downloaded and searched as described in MassWiz article. MzXML files from the Mix 3 dataset were converted to mascot generic format (mgf) using mzXML2Search program. The mgf files for each instrument type were collated into a single mgf fil […]


A Systematic Analysis of Eluted Fraction of Plasma Post Immunoaffinity Depletion: Implications in Biomarker Discovery

PLoS One
PMCID: 3168506
PMID: 21931718
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0024442

[…] ow for high specificity peptide identification from plasma was developed (). In this workflow, separate target-decoy searches were conducted in four different algorithms- Sequest, X!Tandem, OMSSA and MassWiz. A stringent FDR of <1% was applied. The objective of such an effort was to characterize plasma proteins with high confidence, keeping false positives to a bare minimum. Use of multiple algori […]
