How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Dear all,
I am involved in a small project to investigate the way scientists communicate their work and are engaged in social media. We have created a small survey, which you can find following the link below.
The survey is anonymous, and we calculated that you would need maximum 5 minutes to complete it. I know you are all very busy, but I would be extremely grateful if you could find few minutes to complete the questionnaire.
Thank you very much for your time and your help!
I'm looking for an open source program to open a ".dat" file.
The file is the result of a MASCOT search performed using peptide MS/MS data.
Unfortunately, I did not manage to find any suitable program so far, do you have any suggestions?
I´m working on the identification of a chelating compound produced by a bacterial strain. I have an RP-HPLC enriched fraction and I would like to perform an ESI-MS analysis on it. I would like to analyze the fraction before and after addition of Fe3+ to observe the respective shift in mass and consequently identify the interesting m/z. My fraction is dissolved in 70% acetonitrile. However, I´m a bit concerned about the Fe addition. If I will use Fe2(SO4)3, FeCl3 or any other Fe salt, I will also introduce other salt-ions which could modify the MS scan and ruin the analysis. Do you have any suggestion on how I can add Fe+3 without compromising the MS analysis?
Does anyone have a paper, in which it is indicated how much of the total phosphorous pool in bacteria cells is present in the membrane's phospholipids?
