AccurateMassSearch

Build an assay library from DDA data (MS and MS/MS) (mzML). Please provide a list of features found in the data (featureXML).

Features can be detected using the FeatureFinderMetabo (FFM) and identifcation information can be added using the AccurateMassSearch feautreXML output.

If the FFM featureXML is provided the "use_known_unknowns" flag is used automatically.

Internal procedure AssayGeneratorMetabo:
1. Input mzML and featureXML
2. Reannotate precursor mz and intensity
3. Filter feature by number of masstraces
4. Assign precursors to specific feature (FeatureMapping)
5. Extract feature meta information (if possible)
6. Find MS2 spectrum with highest intensity precursor for one feature
7. Dependent on the method fragment annotation via SIRIUS is used for transition extraction.
If not fragment annotation is performed either the MS2 with the highest intensity precursor or a consensus spectrum can be used for the transition extractuib.
8. Calculate thresholds (maximum and minimum intensity for transition peak)
9. Extract and write transitions (tsv, traml)

sirius_executablesirius The Sirius executable. Provide a full or relative path, or make sure it can be found in your PATH environment.input file
in MzML Input fileinput file*.mzML
in_featureinfo FeatureXML input with feature and adduct informationinput file*.featureXML
out_sirius MzTab output file for SIRIUS resultsoutput file*.mzTab
out_fingerid MzTab output file for CSI:FingerID, if this parameter is given, SIRIUS will search for a molecular structure using CSI:FingerID after determining the sum formulaoutput file*.mzTab
out_ms Internal SIRIUS .ms format after OpenMS preprocessingoutput file*.ms
out_annotated_spectra Export spectra with fragment annotations from SIRIUSoutput file*.mzML
out_project_space Output directory for SIRIUS project space
converter_modefalse Use this flag in combination with the out_ms file to convert the input mzML and featureXML to a .ms file. Without further SIRIUS processing.true,false
log Name of log file (created only when specified)
debug0 Sets the debug level
threads1 Sets the number of threads allowed to be used by the TOPP tool
no_progressfalse Disables progress logging to command linetrue,false
forcefalse Overrides tool-specific checkstrue,false
testfalse Enables the test mode (needed for internal use only)true,false
+++preprocessing
filter_by_num_masstraces1 Number of mass traces each feature has to have to be included. To use this parameter, setting the feature_only flag is necessary1:∞
precursor_mz_tolerance10.0 Tolerance window for precursor selection (Feature selection in regard to the precursor)
precursor_mz_tolerance_unitppm Unit of the precursor_mz_toleranceDa,ppm
precursor_rt_tolerance5.0 Tolerance window (left and right) for precursor selection [seconds]
isotope_pattern_iterations3 Number of iterations that should be performed to extract the C13 isotope pattern. If no peak is found (C13 distance) the function will abort. Be careful with noisy data - since this can lead to wrong isotope patterns
feature_onlyfalse Uses the feature information from in_featureinfo to reduce the search space to MS2 associated with a featuretrue,false
no_masstrace_info_isotope_patternfalse Use this flag if the masstrace information from a feature should be discarded and the isotope_pattern_iterations should be used insteadtrue,false
+++project
processors1 Number of cpu cores to use. If not specified SIRIUS uses all available cores.
ignore_formulafalse Ignore given molecular formula in internal .ms format, while processing.true,false
qfalse Suppress shell outputtrue,false
+++sirius
ppm_max10.0 Maximum allowed mass deviation in ppm for decomposing masses [ppm].
ppm_max_ms210.0 Maximum allowed mass deviation in ppm for decomposing masses in MS2 [ppm].If not specified, the same value as for the MS1 is used.
tree_timeout0 Time out in seconds per fragmentation tree computations. 0 for an infinite amount of time0:∞
compound_timeout100 Maximal computation time in seconds for a single compound. 0 for an infinite amount of time.0:∞
no_recalibrationfalse Disable recalibration of input spectratrue,false
profileqtof Name of the configuration profiledefault,qtof,orbitrap,fticr
formula Specify the neutral molecular formula of the measured compound to compute its tree or a list of candidate formulas the method should discriminate. Omit this option if you want to consider all possible molecular formulas
ions_enforced The iontype/adduct of the MS/MS data. Example: [M+H]+,
[M-H]-, [M+Cl]-, [M+Na]+, [M]+. You can also provide a
comma separated list of adducts.
candidates5 The number of formula candidates in the SIRIUS output1:∞
candidates_per_ion-1 Minimum number of candidates in the output for each ionization. Set to force output of results for each possible ionization, even if not part of highest ranked results. -1 omits parameter in Sirius.
elements_considered Set the allowed elements for rare element detection. Write SBrClBSe to allow the elements S,Br,Cl,B and Se.
elements_enforced Enforce elements for molecular formula determination. Write CHNOPSCl to allow the elements C, H, N, O, P, S and Cl. Add numbers in brackets to restrict the minimal and maximal allowed occurrence of these elements: CHNOP[5]S[8]Cl[1-2]. When one number is given then it is interpreted as upper bound. Default is CHNOP
no_isotope_scorefalse Disable isotope pattern score.true,false
no_isotope_filterfalse Disable molecular formula filter. When filtering is enabled, molecular formulas are excluded if their theoretical isotope pattern does not match the theoretical one, even if their MS/MS pattern has high score.true,false
ions_considered the iontype/adduct of the MS/MS data. Example: [M+H]+, [M-H]-, [M+Cl]-, [M+Na]+, [M]+. You can also provide a comma separated list of adducts.
