OpenMS-Simulator predicts the y-ion intensities in the spectrum for given peptide, and the prediction accuracy is improved over MassAnalyzer.
OpenMS-Simulator can re-rank the reported peptides of SEQUEST and X!TANDEM to improve the correctly identified peptides number.
OpenMS-Simulator takes peptide file as input and outputs a MGF file that contains the predicted theoretical spectra, and the spectra can be viewed by OpenMS-Simulator directly.
Accurate prediction of theoretical spectrum for peptide sequence by predicting the y-ion intensities.
Improved the accuracies of SEQUEST and X!TANDEM by re-ranking the identified peptide sequences reported by these two softwares.
OpenMS-Simulator can only support the CID and HCD fragmentation models for peptides with double charges and no PTMs.
