The success of mass spectrometry based proteomics depends on efficient methods for data analysis. These methods require a detailed understanding of the information value of the data. Here, we describe how the information value can be elucidated by performing simulations using synthetic data. 
tipNrich: A Tip-Based N-Terminal Proteome Enrichment Method.
The mass spectrometry-based analysis of protein post-translational modifications requires large amounts of sample, complicating the analysis of samples with limited amounts of proteins such as
Connecting X! Tandem to a Database Management System
Protein identification by mass spectrometry is a valuable method in the field of proteomics and metaproteomics. For protein identification, different protein search engines are used such as X!
Exploring the Diversity of Cysteine-Rich Natural Product Peptides via MS/MS Fingerprint Ions.
This work identifies mass spectral (MS2) "fingerprint" ions characteristic of cyclotides, a diverse and biologically active family of botanical cysteine-rich peptides, based on regions of high sequence homology.


Protein indentification using mass spectrometric information
A software tool, PepFrag, for searching protein and DNA sequence databases that can use different types of mass spectrometric information to restrict the search is described.
Improving the success rate of proteome analysis by modeling protein-abundance distributions and experimental designs
This approach demonstrates that simple changes in typical experimental designs can enhance the success rate of proteome analysis by five- to tenfold.
Probity: a protein identification algorithm with accurate assignment of the statistical significance of the results.
An algorithm for protein identification based on mass spectrometric proteolytic peptide mapping and genome database searching is presented and it is shown that the algorithm responds to random data in the desired manner and that the statistical significance computed indicates the risk that a particular identification result is false.
A method for assessing the statistical significance of mass spectrometry-based protein identifications using general scoring schemes.
This paper investigates the use of survival functions and expectation values to evaluate the results of protein identification experiments, finding accurate survival functions that are specific to any combination of scoring algorithms, sequence databases, and mass spectra.
Protein identification in complex mixtures.
It is demonstrated that the Probity algorithm, which is characterized by an optimal tolerance for random interference, employed in an iterative procedure can correctly identify >95% of proteins at a desired significance level in mixtures composed of hundreds of yeast proteins under realistic mass spectrometric experimental constraints.
Identification of the components of simple protein mixtures by high-accuracy peptide mass mapping and database searching.
Protein mixtures consisting of two or more individual components in a single gel band can be analyzed, further increasing the general applicability of MALDI peptide mapping for protein identification.
A statistical basis for testing the significance of mass spectrometric protein identification results.
The frequency function, f(S), is introduced for false (random) identification results as a basis for testing at what significance level, alpha, one can reject a null hypothesis, H0: "the result is false".
Using annotated peptide mass spectrum libraries for protein identification.
The annotated tandem mass spectrum libraries for the Homo sapiens, Mus musculus, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae proteomes and search software were made available for download and use by other groups.
Development and validation of a spectral library searching method for peptide identification from MS/MS
An open‐source, functionally complete, high‐throughput and readily extensible MS/MS spectral searching tool, SpectraST, developed, which vastly outperforms the sequence search engine SEQUEST in terms of speed and the ability to discriminate good and bad hits.
