Mass Spectrometry Data Center

Welcome

The Mass Spectrometry Data Center compiles, evaluates, correlates and measures Standard Reference Data and develops and disseminates associated electronic databases and analysis software for chemical identification and quality control for (a) electron ionization mass spectra and associated retention properties by the technique of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, (b) reference tandem mass spectra of ‘small molecules’ generated by electrospray and MALDI mass spectrometry widely used for biological analysis and (c) peptide fragmentation libraries that enable the identification of products of digestion of complex protein mixtures in the field of Proteomics. This also involves the development of structure-based estimation methods and reference data quality control methods for the more effective use of this reference data.
