MSCL - Mass Spectrometry Class Library What is it? It a class library for the .NET environment supporting common calculations in mass spectrometry. It is written by the Protein Interaction Laboratory at the University of Southern Denmark but available to everyone through an Open Source license. It is designed to be efficient even for very large data sets. Besides basic mass calculations it is currently oriented towards handling results from searching MS/MS data, in particular the Mascot search program. Can you give me a list of features? 1. Calculate mass of peptides og proteins 2. Mass calculations depend on various settings: mono/average, fixed modifications, charge state, ion-type, 3. Variable modifications are handled by means of xyz 4. What is the scope? What doesn't it do? What is it developed? Will it take 3 years before the first version is released to the public? We have two programs in production that depend on the library and we add things to library as needed. We are not going to do a 2 year up-front design first - the library is actually useful right now. If I choose to base my software on MSCL how can I be sure that it will stay free (GPL'ed)? Portability It is written in a subset of C# that makes it easy to auto-translate into C++ and Java. TBT: dependencies, e.g. collections. Misc To be written in C#
