Open source (free!) software for top down proteomics!
I haven't got to try this yet (27 crazy sleep deprived days to go!) but two people I trust said it's pretty great!
It's called Informed Proteomics and it's a free software package for top down proteomics.
You can read about it in Nature Methods here.
can get the software here.
Another piece of software I don't think gets enough attention (that I have used!) is the MashSuite. While not as powerful as commercial software like Prosight, it is really user friendly and has some solid features. You can get it here.
On the topic -- don't forget that there is a free version of Prosight -- Prosight Lite.
This does a great job of allowing you to instantly test hypotheses about your proteoform against the theoretical data.
