GFS (Genome-based fingerprint scanning) is a program that maps peptide mass fingerprint data directly to raw genomic sequence, enabling rapid, low-cost identification of proteins in genomes for which annotation is lacking. An experimentally obtained peptide mass fingerprint is entered into the program, which then scans a genome sequence of interest, and outputs the most likely regions of the genome from which the mass fingerprint is derived.
The Upton lab developed this JAVA interface to GFS and is grateful to the Giddings lab for access to the software and their help.
