Getting the software

This software is included in the current TPP distribution.

In a nutshell

Libra is a module within the trans-proteomic pipeline to perform quantification on MS/MS spectra that have isobaric multi-reagent labeled peptides. More specifically, at ISB we use Libra on MS/MS spectra of iTRAQ labeled samples; it can also be used on TMT labeled samples. There is no limitation to the number of channels that Libra can quantitate against.

Generating a Condition File

You can generate a condition file using the built-in utility within the TPP web UI (Petunia), or by using a text editor.
