massXpert — Model linear polymers, simulate chemical reactions and predict mass spectrometric data
massxpert [options] [filename ...]
This manual page documents briefly the massxpert software shipped within the msXpertSuite software suite. This program allows one to model linear polymer chemistries using a dedicated grammar. Once the polymer chemistry of interest is defined, the user is allowed to use it to define polymer sequence files. These files serve as the starting point for the simulation of a large set of chemical reactions onto that polymer sequence. This software is comprised of four main submodules: · XpertDef: module to define brand new polymer chemistries; · XpertCalc: module to perform any mass calculation taking advantage of defined polymer chemistries; · XpertEdit: module to edit polymer sequences of any specific polymer chemistry and to graphically perform a wide array of chemical reactions along with the corresponding mass spectrum simulations; · XpertMiner: module to compare with maximum flexibility any number of mass-to-ratio (m/z) lists.
