Paul Gates has a new Mass Spectrometry Resource at the University of Bristol. This site is well worth bookmarking. Paul previously published the site, Theory of Mass Spectrometry, at Cambridge University.

05/23/03 Upchurch HPLC Center wins this months "Link of the Month Award."  It is a well organized center of HPLC resources, go take a look!  03/02/06

PepNovo is a free de novo sequencing on-line resource designed specifically for ion trap data. You can try sequencing this dta file (right click & save as 909.dta). De Novo sequencing with trap data is difficult, but this program does a good job. We set the min and max tag length to 6 and set min. prob. to 0.5 and selected tryptic.  Here is the theoretical sequence GLSDGEWQQLNVWGK  Look at the longest, highest probability tag in the output!
