We here describe a normalization method to combine quantitative proteomics data. By merging the output of two popular quantification software packages, we obtained a 20% increase (on average) in the number of quantified human proteins without suffering from a loss of quality. Our integrative workflow is freely available through our user-friendly, open-source Rover software (http://compomics-rover.googlecode.com/).
