SILVER: intensity-based scoring and visualization of tandem mass spectra

Introduction to SILVER


SILVER allows you to upload spectrum (DTA) files, and view them in the light of a LOD-based scoring scheme, indicating which peaks are surprising, either by their presence or by their absence.
Upload a spectrum (.DTA) file
Upload a peptide-list (.OUT) file
