What we do

The responsibility of the proteome informatics at the FGCZ is to evaluate and provide services to the mass spectrometry scientists at our center, ranging from sample annotation, data archiving, processing, analysis, visualization up to implementing sustainable and maintainable algorithmic solutions, statistics and downstream analysis. These activities also include consulting, teaching, and training for all the relevant tools for our colleagues and researchers.

Highlights 2021


This Bioconductor package wraps the functionality of the RawFileReader .NET assembly. Within the R environment, spectra and chromatograms are represented by S3 objects. The package provides basic functions to download and install the required third-party libraries.

Core facility activities

The key services provided as part of our core facility activities are:

  • Biostatistics
  • Data management
  • Mass spectrometry
  • Protein interactions
  • Proteomics
  • Training
