UNLABELLED DBToolkit is a user-friendly, easily extensible tool that allows the processing of protein sequence databases to peptide-centric sequence databases. This processing is primarily aimed at enhancing the useful information content of these databases for use as optimized search spaces for efficient identification of peptide fragmentation spectra(More)
The Proteomics Identifications database (PRIDE, http://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride) at the European Bioinformatics Institute has become one of the main repositories of mass spectrometry-derived proteomics data. For the last 2 years, PRIDE data holdings have grown substantially, comprising 60 different species, more than 2.5 million protein identifications, 11.5(More)
BACKGROUND The growing interest in the field of proteomics has increased the demand for software tools and applications that process and analyze the resulting data. And even though the purpose of these tools can vary significantly, they usually share a basic set of features, including the handling of protein and peptide sequences, the visualization of (and(More)
The human genome is pervasively transcribed, producing thousands of non-coding RNA transcripts. The majority of these transcripts are long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and novel lncRNA genes are being identified at rapid pace. To streamline these efforts, we created LNCipedia, an online repository of lncRNA transcripts and annotation. Here, we present(More)
The original PRIDE Converter tool greatly simplified the process of submitting mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics data to the PRIDE database. However, after much user feedback, it was noted that the tool had some limitations and could not handle several user requirements that were now becoming commonplace. This prompted us to design and implement a(More)
PRIDE, the 'PRoteomics IDEntifications database' (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride) is a database of protein and peptide identifications that have been described in the scientific literature. These identifications will typically be from specific species, tissues and sub-cellular locations, perhaps under specific disease conditions. Any post-translational(More)
Your editorial " Credit where credit is overdue " 1 aptly summarized the existing situation in the proteomics field, where full data disclosure remains very much a work in progress. Importantly, it also correctly pointed out that 'the software provided by the public repositories for searching and analysing proteomics data is not as efficient and as user(More)
False positive peptide identifications are a major concern in the field of peptidecentric, mass spectrometry-driven gel-free proteomics. They occur in regions where the score distributions of true positives and true negatives overlap. Removal of these false positive identifications necessarily involves a trade-off between sensitivity and specificity.(More)
In mass spectrometry-based proteomics, most conventional search engines match spectral data to sequence databases. These search databases thus play a crucial role in the identification process. While search engines can derive peptides in silico from protein sequences, this is usually limited to standard digestion algorithms. Customized search databases that(More)
