Project description

The project SESAM is sponsored by the FWF (within the translational research programme) and executed as joint basic research project of the group of Karl Mechtler at IMP Vienna and members of the Bioinformatics Research Group Hagenberg. We here follow the path of research started in the MS Amanda project and pursue the development of the peptide and protein identification algorithm MS Amanda.
Within this project we focus on the following aspects:
* Identification of hybrid spectra
* Consideration of many post-translational modifications
* Extraction of features for characterizing tandem mass spectra

The implementation of MS Amanda for Proteome Discoverer 1.3 and 1.4 can be found online:
