PMCID: 5751160
PMID: 29182540
DOI: 10.3390/ijms18122557

[…] ducts and other derivatization agents seems to be promising, especially in combination with data analysis tools providing hierarchical clustering by characteristic class-specific fragment ions (e.g., MetFamily software, recently introduced by Balcke and co-workers []).Although the reagents, conventionally used in amino acid analysis might also produce such characteristic fragments (e.g., character […]


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

[…] onal approach to produce hierarchical trees based on compound similarity to assist visualization of chemical overlap between molecular datasets and the extraction of structure–activity relationships. MetFamily [] groups metabolites into families based on an integrated analysis of MS1 abundances, with MS/MS facilitating further data interpretation. MetCirc [] is an R tool that is particularly usefu […]
