One of the key steps in harvesting meaningful results from the plethora of spectral data generated by mass spectrometric (MS)-based proteomic analysis is deciding what is real and what is spurious. Commonly referred to as the false discovery rate, or FDR, this multiple correction procedure filters results based on the reality of theoretical versus experimental Read the rest of this article
