Precursor intensity-based label-free quantification software tools for proteomic and multi-omic analysis within the Galaxy Platform.

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology


For mass spectrometry-based peptide and protein quantification, label-free quantification (LFQ) based on precursor mass peak (MS1) intensities is considered reliable due to its dynamic range, reproducibility, and accuracy. In LFQ workflows, protein abundance changes are inferred from peptide-level information, including microbial peptides (for metaproteomics) and peptides carrying post-translational modifications (for proteomics) and/or variant sequences (for proteogenomics). Multi-omics studies (such as proteogenomics and metaproteomics) rely on peptide detection and quantification to identify and quantify peptides that map to unique proteoforms and metaproteins. The Galaxy for proteomics (Galaxy-P) platform has proven useful for the development of accessible workflows to identify proteins in these complex multi-omic studies. However, proteomics workflows within the Galaxy platform have lacked well-tested label-free quantification tools. In this study, our main goals were to evaluate two recently published open-source LFQ tools and to implement them within the Galaxy platform, enabling their easy integration with established workflows. These two tools, moFF and FlashLFQ, were selected based on their described peptide quantific...Continue Reading

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.
