What we do

The responsibility of the proteome informatics at the FGCZ is to evaluate and provide services to the mass spectrometry scientists at our center, ranging from sample annotation, data archiving, processing, analysis, visualization up to implementing sustainable and maintainable algorithmic solutions, statistics and downstream analysis. These activities also include consulting, teaching, and training for all the relevant tools for our colleagues and researchers.

Highlights 2020


The R package provides an interface for Thermo Fisher Scientific raw files branched from rawDiag. This package wraps the functionality of the RawFileReader .NET assembly. Within the R environment, spectra and chromatograms are represented by S3 objects.
