MSQuant is a tool for quantitative
proteomics/mass spectrometry and processes spectra and LC runs to find
quantitative information about proteins and peptides. Though automated
it also allows manual inspection and change.
MSQuant's main purpose is to make quantitation
of proteins and peptides possible in the area of mass
spectrometry/proteomics (science/analytical chemistry/molecular
biology). E.g. an experiment where one heavy isotope-labeled sample
from treated cells is compared to unlabelled, untreated cells to give
quantitative answers about cellular processes. The input to MSQuant is
a search result file (HTML) from the Mascot search engine (from Matrix Science).
MSQuant is written in Microsoft's .NET and thus
can only run on Windows computers that have the .NET runtime installed.
The runtime is installed by default in later versions of Windows.
