This tool can be used for de novo sequencing of peptides from MS/MS data.

Novor must be installed before this wrapper can be used. This wrapper was successfully tested with version v1.06.0634 (stable).

Novor settings can be either used via command line or directly using a param file (param.txt).

Parameter names have been changed to match names found in other search engine adapters. For further information check the Novor wiki (http://wiki.rapidnovor.com/wiki/Main_Page) and the official tool website (https://www.rapidnovor.com/).

The command line parameters of this tool are:

NovorAdapter -- Performs de novo sequencing of peptides from MS/MS data with Novor.
