Proteome Software Releases Scaffold PTM
Scaffold PTM has algorithms that assign a site localization probability for each modification and visualization features that allow confirmation of these assignments. Site assignments from multiple mass spectra covering each peptide are combined to give the most complete annotation of each protein's modification sites.
Scaffold PTM works in conjunction with most other bioinformatics tools (Mascot, SEQUEST, X! Tandem, Spectrum Mill, OMSSA, Phenyx, PLGS2, and Scaffold) that process proteomics data. The HUPO standard for data exchange, mzIdentML, is used to transfer data to Scaffold PTM.
Data compiled by Scaffold PTM can be read by a free viewer, that anyone can download. Free 14-day evaluations are available at www.proteomesoftware.com.
