MS2PIP is a tool for predicting MS/MS signal peak intensities from peptide sequences. It can train prediction models from your data and/or predict fragment ion intensities for peptides.
MS2PIP employs the Random Foresttm regression algorithm (RF) as created by Leo Breiman and Adele Cutler. MS2PIP uses the CRAN R implementation.
MS2PIP exploits the potential of multi-core architectures through a forkmanager.
MS2PIP was developed and tested on Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS.
MS2PIP is written in Perl. The following perl CPAN packages are required:
These can be downloaded from http://www.cpan.org/. MS2PIP requires an installation of CRAN R (http://cran.r-project.org/) and makes system calls to the randomForest package
which can be found at http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/randomForest/index.html (we used version 4.6-7).
