Analyzing spectrum data in a database with levels

In this tutorial a few follow-up analysis tools applicable to spectra - stored in a leveled BIONUMERICS database - are illustrated. Analysis tools include cluster analysis, peak matching, PCA analysis, creation of peak class subsets, identification of unknown samples based on peak data, etc.  

Spectra

Spectrum types (or spectra) share some features with fingerprints, but are specifically designed to hold and process e.g. mass spectrometry data such as MALDI TOF MS, LC MS, ESI and SELDI.
