GlycopeptideID is an open access web tool developed to ease the analysis of the glycopeptide CID MS2 spectra. The tool is developed and hosted by Applied Numerics in collaboration with the University of Helsinki.Key features:
The service is open for guests and registered users. For guests the imported data and results are stored for one week and the total disk quota is limited to 3 GB. For registered users the limits can be negotiated. Also, if large scale analysis is required, set up of a dedicated server or a cluster is possible. To register please contact hannu.peltoniemi(at)appliednumerics.fi.
For smooth usage the service is run in a large (virtual) server. To reduce the costs the server is stopped if the service is not used. If the server is stopped, the restart page is located at the same web address as the running service.
Feel free to use the service. However, the service is currently at beta level and requires more testing with practical use cases.
Please, report all bugs. Also, all suggestions for improvements are welcome.
The service is tested with Firefox. Other browsers may have some problems, especially IE. For details of known issues see Notes.
The official publication of this service is yet to come. However, the computational methods follow closely the methods published at Joenväärä, S. et al., N-Glycoproteomics – an automated workflow approach., Glycobiology 2008 18(4):339-349 and at Peltoniemi, H. et al., Novel data analysis tool for semiquantitative LC-MS-MS2 profiling of N-glycans. Glycoconj. J. 2013, 30(2):159-170.
For issues about this web service contact Hannu Peltoniemi (hannu.peltoniemi(at)appliednumerics.fi).
The service is released with a hope that it will be beneficial for glycopeptide analysis. However, Applied Numerics do not take any responsibility of the imported user data or the results given by the service.
Several open source or open data projects have been used with this service, including:
