Mass Spectrometry Peak Prediction

Show Possible Mtb Structures

This prediction tool uses data corresponding to over 2,500 precursor ions indentified by LC/MS lipid profiling (Sartain, M. et al, see reference below). Mtb lipids are organized into lipid categories according to the LIPID MAPS classification scheme.

Enter a tab or space delimited list of m/z and intensity values of precursor ions and specify the intensity threshold (cutoff) and ion type:
