US Patent 7,756,646. Method for predicting peptide detection in mass spectrometry. Inventors: Lars Kangas, Richard Smith, Konstantinos Petritis. Assignee: Battelle Memorial Institute
Covers a method for using repeated mass spectrometry analysis of a sample containing peptides from proteins with known amino acids to generate an algorithm capable of calculating the probability that a hypothetical peptide in a sample will be detected by a mass spec-based proteomic platform.
