MRMMapper maps measured chromatograms (mzML) and the transitions used (TraML).

FileFilter OpenSwathAnalyzer

This tool reads an mzML containing chromatograms (presumably measured on an SRM instrument) and a TraML file that contains the data that was used to generate the instrument method to measure said data. It then maps the transitions in the TraML file to the chromatograms found in the mzML file and stores the chromatograms annotated with meta-data from the TraML file. Thus, the output chromatograms are an annotated copy of the input chromatograms with native id, precursor information and peptide sequence (if available) annotated in the chromatogram files.

The algorithm tries to match a given set of chromatograms and targeted assays. It iterates through all the chromatograms retrieves one or more matching targeted assay for the chromatogram. By default, the algorithm assumes that a 1:1 mapping exists. If a chromatogram cannot be mapped (does not have a corresponding assay) the algorithm issues a warning, the user can specify that the program should abort in such a case (see error_on_unmapped).

If multiple mapping is enabled (see map_multiple_assays parameter) then each mapped assay will get its own chromatogram that contains the same raw data but different meta-annotation. This can be useful if the same transition is used to monitor multiple analytes but may also indicate a problem with too wide mapping tolerances.

The thus mapped mzML file can then be used in a downstream analysis.
