Developed by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the method is an improved version of electron transfer dissociation that fragments peptides more thoroughly.

Presented this week at the ECCMID annual meeting, the method uses mass spec to detect alterations to bacteria lipopolysaccharides that confer resistance.
