MS_Piano for Annotating Peaks in Mass Spectra of Peptides and N-Glycopeptides

MS_Piano (Mass Spectrum Peptide Annotation) is a comprehensive software for fast and reliable annotation of high- and low- resolution tandem mass spectra of CID and ETD in positive and negative modes for peptides, N- and O- linked glycopeptides. It annotates each peak in a spectrum with possible product ion(s) and the mass difference between the measured and theoretical m/z values. It also measures the spectral quality with various parameters. This software has been used as an essential software tool for building NIST Libraries of Peptides and Glycopeptides. MS_Piano is freely available for the Windows operating system.

MS_Piano Version 4.3 download:

  • Software tool convert2msp to convert the files from MS_Fragger and pGlyco searching respectively to the msp files for annotation is also included.
  • NISTMS-GADS for spectral visualization and glycopeptide library (included) searching
