MetaProteomeAnalyzer - identification of taxonomic and functional relationships between identified proteins
Metaproteomics data from tandem mass spectrometry experiments can be analyzed using the MetaProteomeAnalyzer tool. Mass spectra in Mascot Generic Format are loaded and stored to a database, can be searched against Protein databases (fasta format). To allow identification of taxonomic and functional relationships between identified proteins, the software groups proteins into metaproteins and gathers metadata on proteins from UniProt, Kegg Pathways and NCBI taxonomies to allow the user a meaningful interpretation of the data. Additionally BLAST searches can be submitted, different samples can be compared and a variety of data exporters are available.
