1 Requirements

In a first step, the peptide identification result is generated by a standard shotgun proteomics experiment and has to be processed using the bibliospec software. (Frewen and MacCoss 2007).

For generating the ion library the specL is used. The workflow is described in (Panse et al. 2015).

The following R packages has to be installed on the compute box.

library(specL)

This file can be rendered by useing the following code snippet.

library(rmarkdown)
library(BiocStyle)
report_file <- tempfile(fileext='.Rmd'); 
file.copy(system.file("doc", "report.Rmd", 
                      package = "specL"), 
          report_file); 
rmarkdown::render(report_file, 
                  output_format='html_document', 
                  output_file='/tmp/report_specL.html')

2 Input

2.1 Parameter

If no INPUT is defined the report uses the specL package’s data and the following default parameters.

if(!exists("INPUT")){
  INPUT <- list(FASTA_FILE 
      = system.file("extdata", "SP201602-specL.fasta.gz",
                    package = "specL"),
    BLIB_FILTERED_FILE 
      = system.file("extdata", "peptideStd.sqlite",
                    package = "specL"),
    BLIB_REDUNDANT_FILE 
      = system.file("extdata", "peptideStd_redundant.sqlite",
                    package = "specL"),
    MIN_IONS = 5,
    MAX_IONS = 6,
    MZ_ERROR = 0.05,
    MASCOTSCORECUTOFF = 17,
    FRAGMENTIONMZRANGE = c(300, 1250),
    FRAGMENTIONRANGE = c(5, 200),
    NORMRTPEPTIDES = specL::iRTpeptides,
    OUTPUT_LIBRARY_FILE = tempfile(),
    ANNOTATE = TRUE
    )
} 

The library generation workflow was performed using the following parameters:


Table 1: used INPUT parameter

FASTA_FILE /tmp/Rtmpxk6qkx/Rinst2aa44ab1fd7f/specL/extdata/SP201602-specL.fasta.gz
BLIB_FILTERED_FILE /tmp/Rtmpxk6qkx/Rinst2aa44ab1fd7f/specL/extdata/peptideStd.sqlite
BLIB_REDUNDANT_FILE /tmp/Rtmpxk6qkx/Rinst2aa44ab1fd7f/specL/extdata/peptideStd_redundant.sqlite
MIN_IONS 5
MAX_IONS 6
MZ_ERROR 0.05
MASCOTSCORECUTOFF 17
FRAGMENTIONMZRANGE 300, 1250
FRAGMENTIONRANGE 5, 200
OUTPUT_LIBRARY_FILE /tmp/Rtmpd7pNV0/file2e8c3326496

2.2 Define the fragment ions of interest

The following R helper function is used for composing the in-silico fragment ions using protViz.

fragmentIonFunction_specL <- function (b, y) {
  Hydrogen <- 1.007825
  Oxygen <- 15.994915
  Nitrogen <- 14.003074
  b1_ <- (b )
  y1_ <- (y )
  b2_ <- (b + Hydrogen) / 2
  y2_ <- (y + Hydrogen) / 2 
  return( cbind(b1_, y1_, b2_, y2_) )
}

2.3 Read the sqlite files

BLIB_FILTERED <- read.bibliospec(INPUT$BLIB_FILTERED_FILE) 
## fetched 137 rows.
## assigning 28 modifications ...
summary(BLIB_FILTERED)
## Summary of a "psmSet" object.

## Number of annotated precursor:
##  0
BLIB_REDUNDANT <- read.bibliospec(INPUT$BLIB_REDUNDANT_FILE) 
## fetched 184 rows.

## Number of annotated precursor:
##  0

2.4 Protein (re)-annotation

After processing the psm using bibliospec the protein information is gone.

The read.fasta function is provided by the CRAN package seqinr.

if(INPUT$ANNOTATE){
  FASTA <- read.fasta(INPUT$FASTA_FILE, 
                    seqtype = "AA", 
                    as.string = TRUE)

  BLIB_FILTERED <- annotate.protein_id(BLIB_FILTERED, 
                                       fasta = FASTA)
}
## start protein annotation ...
## time taken:  0.00934805870056152 minutes

2.5 Peptides used for RT normalization

The following peptides are used for the RT normalization. The last column indicates by FALSE/TRUE if a peptides is included in the data. The rows were ordered by the RT values.
