Warp2D - 2D Time Alignment Workflow

2D Time Alignment

We describe a new time alignment method that takes advantage of both dimensions of LC-MS data to resolve ambiguities in peak matching while remaining computationally efficient. This approach, Warp2D, combines peak extraction with a two-dimensional correlation function to provide a reliable alignment scoring function that is insensitive to spurious peaks and background noise. One-dimensional alignment methods are often based on the total-ion-current elution profile of the spectrum and are unable to distinguish peaks of different masses.

Warp2D - 2D Time Alignment

Warp2D is an efficient, fundamentally new approach to correct for non linear retention time shifts between complex proteomics and metabolomics LC-MS data sets. Warp2D operates on peak lists and use the integral of overlapping peak volume of the reference and sample chromatograms in benefit function with Correlation Optimized Warping algorithm.

We have an online version of this approach as SaaS(Software as a Service) i.e Web Services to facilitate large number of audience. This service enable you to upload Generic Peak lists and get back your Results.
