This chapter will explore the role of mass spectrometry (MS) as a detection method for genotyping applications and will illustrate how MS evolved from an expert-user-technology to a routine laboratory method in biological sciences. The main focus will be time-of-flight (TOF) based devices and their use for analyzing single-nucleotide-polymorphisms (SNPs,(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometry (MS) has developed during the past decade into a versatile tool for biopolymer analysis. The aim of this review is to summarize this development and outline the applications, which have been enabled for routine use in the field of nucleic acid analysis. These include(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most common form of genetic variation. Their abundance and the ease with which they can be assayed have lead to their use in applications beyond simple genotyping. One such application is the quantitative determination of transcript levels associated with distinct alleles or haplotypes found in promoters and(More)
To find genes that underlie disease susceptibilities, genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been analyzed using high-throughput matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometry (MS). As a proof-of-concept for this approach, gene regions have been identified that were previously associated by others(More)
A rapid approach to the 16S rRNA gene (16S rDNA)-based bacterial identification has been developed that combines uracil-DNA-glycosylase (UDG)-mediated base-specific fragmentation of PCR products with matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS). 16S rDNA signature sequences were PCR-amplified from both cultured(More)
Here we devise a new method for high-throughput comparative sequence analysis. The developed protocol comprises a homogeneous in vitro transcription/RNase cleavage system with the accuracy and data acquisition speed of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS). In summary, the target region is(More)
