Assits researchers without extensive proteomics knowledge and large computational resources. PATS is a search application developed to identify novel peptide and protein sequences in large published mass spectrometry data sets. It automatically visualizes protein correlation matrixes and protein network maps for all the bait proteins of each searched peptide sequence. It also provides readily testable hypotheses for protein function.
