Prosit-Derived Spectral Libraries for Scaffold DIA Searches

Prosit is a deep learning algorithm developed by the Wilhelm and Kuster group to predict fragmentation and retention times for peptides. We use Prosit to predict DIA-specific libraries from all possible +2H and +3H peptides in FASTA databases. While the search time is roughly the same as FASTA searches, Scaffold DIA is specifically designed to perform proteome-scale searches, such that Prosit libraries perform as well as smaller sample or tissue-specific DDA libraries used by other tools without the need to perform any DDA library-generation experiments. This approach is particularly powerful when combined with the chromatogram library method to calibrate Prosit libraries for each sample type and instrument. 

Proteome Software has built a repository of spectral libraries for common organisms which are available below. If you would like us to make a specific Prosit library for you, please contact us with an organism-specific FASTA (with only reviewed entries). Please note that Prosit will only work with carbamidomethylated peptides (C+57). You cannot use any other cysteine alkylation method and you cannot add any PTMs for Prosit other than oxidation.
