lutefisk - software for the de novo interpretation of peptide CID
lutefisk [-q ] [ -m ] [ -d] [ -p ] [ -r ] [ -s ] [ -v] [ -h] [-o ]
lutefisk is a software for the de novo interpretation of peptide CID
spectra. It takes peptide CID data and some ancillary data files (of
which the location is specified on the command line) and outputs a
results file containing all the sequences hypothetically matching the
When you invoke lutefisk with the -h option, the program lists to the
command line all the options that are available.
-h Print a list of options
-q Run in quiet mode
-m Precursor ion mass
-d Pathname to the details file
-p Pathname to the params file
-r Pathname to the residues file
-s Pathname to the file with database sequences to score
-v Run in verbose mode
-o Output file
CID data file
The data required to run the program are located in
Example data are located in /usr/share/doc/lutefisk/examples.
