[…] as it can be seen, in terms of correct identifications (as well as minimizing false positives), the proposed approach outperformed all the predictive techniques., at the state-of-the-art ms2assign [] and massmatrix [] are two ms-based methods that can be applied to the problem of determining s-s bond connectivity. in our previous work [], the ms2db system developed by us was found […]

[…] which are particularly relevant for cross-linked samples. therefore, candidate cross-links identified by accurate mass data alone must be further confirmed at the ms/ms level using programs such as ms2assign ()., the development of instruments that are suitable for high throughput lc-ms/ms analysis (e.g. fticr and orbitrap hybrid instruments) and provide high mass accuracy now allows […]
