Abstract

We describe in this communication a set of functional perl script utilities for use in peptide mass spectral database searching and proteomics experiments, known as the Wildcat Toolbox. These are all freely available for download from our laboratory Web site (http://proteomics.arizona.edu/toolbox.html) as a combined zip file, and can also be accessed via the Proteome Commons Web site (www.proteomecommons.org) in the tools section. We make them available to other potential users in the spirit of open source software development; we do not have the resources to provide any significant technical support for them, but we hope users will share both bugs and improvements with the community at large.
