Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.




In this study, we presented a quality control tool named PepDistiller to facilitate the validation of MASCOT search results. By including the number of tryptic termini, and integrating a refined false discovery rate (FDR) calculation method, we demonstrated the improved sensitivity of peptide identifications obtained from semitryptic search results. Based on the analysis of a complex data set, approximately 7% more peptide identifications were obtained using PepDistiller than using MASCOT Percolator. Moreover, the refined method generated lower FDR estimations than the percentage of incorrect target (PIT) fixed method applied in Percolator. Using a standard data set, we further demonstrated the increased accuracy of the refined FDR estimations relative to the PIT-fixed FDR estimations. PepDistiller is fast and convenient to use, and is freely available for academic access. The software can also be downloaded from http://www.bprc.ac.cn/pepdistiller.
