ms3d Software Download Page
Software developed for the ms3d project is available for download below.
Mass++ is freeware for displaying and analyzing mass spectrometry data from a variety of vendors. It was developed jointly by Shimadzu Corporation’s Koichi Tanaka Laboratory of Advanced Science and Technology together with Eisai Co., Ltd., based on the results inherited from a JST/CREST project, as part of research and development funded by Japan’s Cabinet Office under the FIRST Program (ms3d project).
Offering it as open source software makes it much easier to expand or modify simple Mass++ functionality. Furthermore, the source code for existing plug-ins is also being made available as sample code for developing new plug-ins that provide new functionality for Mass++.
- Supports inputting/outputting analytical data to/from multiple models of mass spectrometers from multiple vendors.
- Data analysis functionality and operability features configured specifically for the life sciences.
- Expandability allows users to add custom functionality they developed themselves.
ProteinCarta and PTM Librarian (web tools)
ProteinCarta is a database for identifying proteins based on their terminal sequence, determined by mass spectrometry or other means.
By entering information about post-translational modifications for proteins found by a database search engine, the PTM Librarian tool determines whether or not those post-translational modifications are known. If known, it displays reference literature information reported for those modifications.
