Comprehensive untargeted metabolomics of Lychnnophorinae subtribe (Asteraceae: Vernonieae) in a phylogenetic context

PLoS One
PMCID: 5764248
PMID: 29324799
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0190104
call_split See protocol

[…] d 36,861 and 24,482 mass signals in both positive and negative electrospray ionization mode (UHPLC-MS), respectively, at ion intensity higher than 105. Mass signals were subsequently re-grouped using MSClust (Netherlands Genomics Initiative/Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research) [], resulting in 73 (GC-MS), 2,972 (UHPLC-MS negative ionization mode) and 2,974 (UHPLC-MS positive ionizatio […]


Metabolomic analysis of tomato seed germination

PMCID: 5653705
PMID: 29104520
DOI: 10.1007/s11306-017-1284-x

[…] less than three RILs or lower than 35 were discarded. Remaining peaks below background were randomized from 50 to 100%. Out of all the remaining mass signals (5601), centrotypes were formed using the MSclust program (Tikunov et al. ) with the following parameters: correlation threshold at 0.9 with 0.01 margin softness; PDF correlation of 0.8 with margin of 0.02; a peak width of 20 with a margin of […]


Metabolite profiling and associated gene expression reveal two metabolic shifts during the seed to seedling transition in Arabidopsis thaliana

Plant Mol Biol
PMCID: 5688192
PMID: 29046998
DOI: 10.1007/s11103-017-0665-x

[…] co®), and further baseline correction, accurate mass calculation, data smoothing and noise reduction, followed by alignment between chromatograms were performed using the MetAlign software (Lommen ). MSClust was used to remove metabolite signal redundancy in aligned mass peaks tables and to retrieve mass spectral information of metabolites using mass peak clustering (Tikunov et al. ). The mass spe […]


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

[…] CAMERA or by the ALLocatorSD algorithm, which is optimized for dealing with the particularities of 13C labeled data by grouping mirrored isotopes (lighter isotopologues from the feeding experiment). MSClust [] has the same general features as the others, but it was developed in the C++ language and it is optimized to work with the output files of MetAlign. RAMClustR [] was developed in MATLAB and […]


Untargeted metabolomic analysis of tomato pollen development and heat stress response

PMCID: 5486769
PMID: 28508929
DOI: 10.1007/s00497-017-0301-6

[…] eak signal was subtracted to the estimated noise signal. Compound mass spectra and quantitative ions were extracted from the modified MetAlign outputs using a method described in Tikunov et al. () by MSClust software (available from MSClust output was reduced by keeping compounds that were quantitatively present in all the replicates of one of the experimental treatments: heat st […]


Metabolomic homeostasis shifts after callus formation and shoot regeneration in tomato

PLoS One
PMCID: 5421760
PMID: 28481937
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0176978

[…] The NetCDF files were obtained from ChromaTOF software chromatography version (LECO Corporation, USA) GC-MS were further analysed using MetAlign 3.0 ( [] and MSClust [] software with a signal to noise ratio of ≥ 2, for baseline correction, noise estimation, alignment and extraction of ionwise mass signal. The mass signals that were present in <3 samples we […]
