Percolator ,  is a popular algorithm for statistical validation of shotgun proteomic data. Using the OpenMS TOPP tool
PercolatorAdapter, Percolator can score the results from OpenSWATH and thus be used instead of PyProphet.
Contact and Support¶
OpenSWATH support in
PercolatorAdapter is currently in development and must NOT be used in production environments. We would however be very grateful for testing of the tool and reporting of problems and bugs.
We provide support for
PercolatorAdapter using the OpenMS support channels. Please address general questions to the open-ms-general mailing list.
Please address any general Percolator inquiries to the Percolator team.
PercolatorAdapter is available in the OpenMS development branch. To convert the results of
PercolatorAdapter to an OpenSWATH TSV report, the SQLite-enabled
PyProphet version is required. Please install these versions according to the instructions in the Binaries section.
PercolatorAdapter can be run on the OSW results using the following commands:
# Score on MS2-level PercolatorAdapter -in_osw openswath_results.osw -out openswath_results.osw \ -osw_level ms2 # Score on MS1-level PercolatorAdapter -in_osw openswath_results.osw -out openswath_results.osw \ -osw_level ms1 # Score on transition-level PercolatorAdapter -in_osw openswath_results.osw -out openswath_results.osw \ -osw_level transition
If IPF should be applied after scoring, the following command can be used:
pyprophet ipf --in=merged.osw
Finally, we can export the results to a legacy OpenSWATH TSV report:
pyprophet export --in=merged.osw --out=legacy.tsv \
