MS²PIP is a tool to predict MS² signal peak intensities from peptide sequences. It employs the XGBoost machine learning algorithm and is written in Python.

You can install MS²PIP on your machine by following our extended install instructions found on the MS²PIP GitHub repository. For a more user friendly experience, we created a web server. There, you can easily upload a list of peptide sequences, after which the corresponding predicted MS² spectra can be downloaded in a CSV or MGF file format. The web server can also be contacted through the REST API.
