The technique enables the identification of peptides and proteins without use of a protein database and could prove particularly useful in analysis of post-translational modifications and protein variants as well as in studies of organisms for which no protein databases exist, said Albert Heck, scientific director of the Netherlands Proteomics Centre and leader of the effort.
