Hoping to Break Mass Spec Data Bottleneck, Proteomics Turns to Reconfigurable Hardware | GenomeWeb

Borrowing a page from the sequence-analysis sector, the field of proteomics is adopting specialized hardware to grapple with a mass spec data deluge.

Last week, a team of researchers led by Christopher Hogue of the Blueprint Initiative said that they had developed an approach based on field-programmable gate arrays — reconfigurable circuits that can be customized for particular processing tasks — to accelerate data analysis for mass spectrometry-based proteomics experiments.
