SiriusExport

Build an assay library from a SIRIUS project directory using fragmentation trees.

  • Use the SiriusExport TOPP tool with each samples mzML and featureXML files to generate a SIRIUS input ms file.
    SiriusExport -in sample.mzML -in_featureinfo sample.featureXML -out_ms sample.ms
  • Run SIRIUS externally with "--no-compression" flag and the formula, passatutto (optional, for decoy generation) and write-summaries tools.
  • This tool was tested with the SIRIUS project directory generated with SIRIUS versions >= 5.5.1 and <= 5.8.6.
    sirius --input sample.ms --project sirius-project --maxmz 300 --no-compression formula passatutto write-summaries
  • Provide the path to SIRIUS project as input parameter for this tool.

The command line parameters of this tool are:

                                              spectrum is used for assay library construction (if no fragment

                                               mass to the overlapping decoy fragments. 'generate_missing_dec
                                              oys' will add a -CH2 mass shift to the target fragments and 
                                              use them as decoys if fragmentation-tree re-rooting failed. 
                                              'Both' combines the extended methods (resolve_overlap, generate
                                              _missing_decoys). (default: 'original') (valid: 'original', 
                                              'resolve_overlap', 'generate_missing_decoys', 'both')
