PMCID: 5819086
PMID: 29463217
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-018-1141-1

[…] reference proteomes were downloaded from uniprot on 30/06/2016 using the canonical sequence for each protein only. peaks searches included the full set of available processes (peaks de novo > peaks db > peaks ptm > peaks spider). within this workflow, peaks spider is restricted to the identification of one amino acid mutation compared to the reference database, while peaks db […]

PMCID: 5887430
PMID: 29385462
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/giy003

[…] studio 7 (bioinformatics solutions inc., waterloo, canada) search engine. a multiple–search engine platform provided by peaks studio named inchorus was used, which combines searching results from peaks db (bioinformatics solutions inc.), mascot (matrix science, london, uk), omssa (national center for biotechnology information, bethesda, usa), and x! tandem (global proteome machine […]

[…] window: 2 m/z, normalized collision energy: 30)., the ms/ms raw data were collected using xcalibur (version 2.2, thermo fisher scientific, bremen, germany). protein identification using in-house peaks db software (version 7.5, bioinformatics solutions inc. waterloo, canada) was performed by searching against the sequence database (21,780 protein sequences of apis mellifera, downloaded […]

DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2017.01286

[…] signals for a matching spectrum., a database was constructed from all unique immunoglobulin sequences observed in all samples combined. this database was used to match ms/ms spectra with a peaks db search. affinity-enrichment yields previously suggested that the specific igg makes up about 0.1% of the total amount of igg. on the other hand, the spleen may be enriched for immune cells […]

PMCID: 5568403
PMID: 28832675
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0182844

[…] provided independent and complementary quantitative proteomic data sets. polypeptide sequencing was carried out using the mascot and sequest ht algorithms in proteome discoverer and the de novo, peaks db, peaks ptm and spider algorithms in peaks studio. the international protein index (ipi) mus musculus (version 3.87) protein sequence database was used for spectral matching.
