MS-GF+ is a MS/MS database search tool






biotools: MSGFplus, doi: 10.1038/ncomms6277

MS-GF+ is a MS/MS database search tool that is sensitive (it identifies more peptides than other database search tools and as many peptides as spectral library search tools) and universal (works well for diverse types of spectra, different configurations of MS instruments and different experimental protocols).

You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install msgf_plus

and update with::

   mamba update msgf_plus

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname msgf_plus

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `msgf_plus/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
