It was great to see you all again. I presented a poster with the latest developments for MRMaid (our MRM transition design tool): MRMaid: automating the design of multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) experiments using expert knowledge and MS/MS data-mining Using…

Can you be more specific, please?!

As well as Duncan’s point (see post below), Sherman, Molloy and co-workers, also in Proteomics (vol 9), believe that monitoring the transition of a single precursor to product ion is not specific enough to define a unique peptide anyway.  This…

Should we be more selective?

I hate the word ‘should’ – it always implies that there is something you have to do but you’d rather put it off.  Well, I recently came across a viewpoint article that made me think we really ‘should’ be doing…

MRM is not allowed

According to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), the body that makes recommendations regarding nomenclature  used in mass spectrometry, ‘Multiple Reaction Monitoring’ (MRM) is an “incorrect term” .  They suggest instead that ‘selected reaction monitoring’ (SRM) is…

Do you find proteomics databases confusing?

Do you need a little help finding out which proteomics data repository is for you?  Would you like to know what each one has to offer?  Would you like some help navigating to the right resource for your needs? Lucky…
