Point mutations?
(8 responses) mnt 2021-07-28
Hi All

I'm curently working on a project where we want to use Skyline for some validation/relative quantification. I have used X!Tandem in The GPM to search the datafiles and am now attempting to import these into Skyline. However, as part of my search with X!Tandem, i deliberately engaged the "point mutation" option, and now skyline cannot import the data. The generated Error is attached below. So the question is if it is possible or not to to have this option engaged at all? Personally i would hope so since it seems to provide some quite interesting results, however at this point it seems as it is not.

Any suggestions?

Selection of razor peptides for Quantitative proteomics
jyoti 16541 2021-07-30

We are planning to develop a mass spectrometry based quantitative assay for the monitoring of certain proteins/ genes. As part of this, we are working on selecting the best proteotypic peptide for each of our target proteins using Skyline.

There are certain proteins which do not have any unique proteotypic peptide. But when we try to apply uniqueness at the gene level, we could see certain peptides considered as unique to a gene. So, I would like to know whether we can consider such peptides (razor peptides) for our quantitative proteomics?

For example, we are looking for a proteotypic peptide of p40 (deltaNP63alpha). However, the peptide sequence for p40 is present in its multiple isoforms. Hence we are not able to select specific proteotypic peptides for p40 isoform (i.e alpha).

Number of scans from raw data
(4 responses) ulisse cucchi 2021-07-29

Hello Skyline Team,

I'm still trying to learn the basics of the software, in particular for the targeted analysis of peptides by PRM. I managed to perform all the steps well described by your tutorials, but I have an issue regarding the number of scans that are imported into Skyline from the raw data. To show you the issue I attached you 3 slides in a pdf file.

In the slide 1 you can see the peak from the raw file (two different visualizations of the same peak are showed). As you can see the peak contains over 40 scans of the same precursor (the instrument used was the Orbitrap Exploris 240 from Thermo).

In the second slide you can see how the same peak is imported into Skyline. As you can see, only few scans (less than 10) are used and the resulting peak has a lower resolution, that means also a lower accuracy when the peak is integrated.

In the third and last slide you can see the only parameter that I've found that should affect the number of scans that are imported, but the option "include all matching scans" was already selected. Since they are all very good scans from the raw file, I don't understand why Skyline is considering less than 10 of them. Is there any way to make Skyline import all the scans present in the raw file?

Thanks in advance for any answer and suggestion you may provide,

Best regards,

Ulisse Cucchi from Nerviano Medical Sciences (Italy)

Seperate MS/MS Filtering Settings for Light vs. Heavy Precursors
(6 responses) n t wamsley 2021-07-19

Hello, I am working on a PRM method with stable-isotope-labeled internal standards. Technically it is "SureQuant" where the SIL peptides are monitored to trigger acquisition of endogenous peptides. MS2 scans for the heavy SIL peptides are carried out in an orbitrap at a resolving power of 7,500 at 200 m/z. However, MS2 scans for the endogenous/light peptides are carried out at a resolving power of 60,000 at 200 m/z. Right now I am using 7500 at 200 m/z for both the light and heavy peptides. However, I would like to enforce a separate and more stringent threshold for the endogenous MS2 scans that reflects the different instrument settings used in my method. I believe that on account of the thresholds being too low for the endogenous (in skyline), some of the endogenous transitions appear to have a lot of interference. At the moment is it possible to change this in skyline?

CE optimization on a Sciex Qtrap
(1 response) alejandro.cohen 2021-07-15

Hi Skyline people

We are performing a CE optimization on a SMR experiment run on a QTrap5500 for small molecules, and following the Tutorials. Experimentally, everything worked fin.
We exported the Transition list into the .dam files with multiple the CEs, and reacquired data on known standards. When reimporting the wiff files into Skyline, we get the expected 'curve' for the CEs.

The Replicate graphs show a legend for the colors and CE Steps (-10,-9. etc).

Is there a way for Skyline to show the nominal CEs used by the instrument in the graphs instead of the Steps? Or, is there any parameter in the Document grid to show the Nominal CEs??? All the parameters with CEs I select show either calculated values, or Steps.

Hope I made myself clear!

Cheers

Retention time decimal place
(3 responses) muluneh 2021-06-14

Is there a way to set up retention time decimal places? I use a windows computer and it displays only one decimal place. ..like 14.3. Can I set up Skyline to display 14.32 or something like that?
I use RT +/- 0.02 min between the analyte and heavy labeled standard, and it's making the comparison a bit difficult. I know the skyline displays two decimal places when I export the report in Excel.

Thanks!

Comparing Peak Scoring / Sample Specific Peak Scoring Models
(4 responses) peter r mosen 2021-06-17

Hello Skyline team, hello Skyline community,

Is there any tutorial etc. which deals with Skylines “Comparing Peak Scoring“ function? I would like to understand the plots (e.g. the different y-axis options) as well as its application better. The tutorials 14, 15 and 18 cover peak model building in general but I didn’t find anything on the “Comparing Peak Scoring” option.

Briefly about my situation: In my targeted MRM assay I am monitoring peptides across multiple organs (9x) and cell lines (5x). For data analysis I am using mProphet peak scoring models. I was now wondering if it is best to use for each organ type its own peak scoring model, or if a mixed-organ respectively mixed cell line peak scoring model can be used for the individual organs. Anyone with any experience in that? Any suggestions, any hints ?

Best, Peter

Using same molecules as iRT standard and surrogate internal standards?
(1 response) Will Thompson 2021-07-02

Hi Skyline Team,

I have a use case where i would like to use the same set of stable-isotope labeled molecules both as iRT standards as well as surrogate internal standards for the purposes of quantification. If i set the molecule as an iRT standard (i.e. the little "clock" icon comes up on the molecule) then when i go to the right-click menu to set that molecule as a surrogate standard the selections are greyed out. I can't think of any practical reason why this would not be allowed. Am I doing something wrong, is there a functional reason this is the case, or is this a bug?

Representative Skyline file attached. IF you look in the document grid, you do have the surrogate standards assigned to different molecules, but this is only because i did this part before applying the iRT correction.

Help as always is appreciated.

Cheers,

Will

Building a spectral library using msp
(7 responses) laura corveleyn 2021-02-02

Dear,

I am trying to build a spectral library in Skyline using an msp file based on predicted spectra. Since we work with histones, we derivatize our peptides using propionylation, so all unmodified lysines and N-terms are blocked with a propionyl group. Therefore, Propionyl (K) and Propionyl (N-term) are fixed modifications, unless another variable modification is present. However, Skyline does not seem to recognize the modification "Propionyl" from the msp, although I also defined it as a modification in the peptide settings. All other modifications (e.g. Acetyl, Dimethyl,..) that I defined, are used correctly in the library. After some research, we figured out that Skyline recalculates the precursor m/z for each peptide (based on its sequence) and doesn't use the one that is stated in the msp. So for a peptide that carries a propionyl group, the m/z is recalculated as if the peptide would be unmodified because Skyline does not recognize the propionyl.

In the attachment you can find a short example of a predicted msp and the Skyline document with the corresponding library I built with this msp. In the msp you can see that the Propionyl group in the header is stated in the exact same way other modifications are, so I don't understand where the problem is.

Thank you in advance for helping me out!

Best,

Laura

ambiguous PRM peptides don't show up as targets, but can be found in the library
(1 response) susanne matschi 2021-07-23

Hello,

First of all, I am quite new to the MS field so there might be some obvious error I just don't know any better about. I am working on Windows 10 Pro with Skyline 20.2.0.343.
I am trying to analyze PRM data measured on a Thermo QExactive Plus, including heavy peptides for quantification. Doing identification with Proteome Discoverer using our Mascot server, it can find the native peptides (unfortunately only 10-80 PSMs depending on the sample) as well as the labelled ones (more than 1000 PSMs per sample).
When trying to build a library with the msf or PD result files and importing the data to Skyline, the peptides do not show up as targets at all. I went back and tried to import some of the Mascot dat files, which then gave me the error "Peptides had multiple ambiguous peptide matches and were excluded". I redid the library build and importing, checking the box "include ambiguous peptide-spectrum matches", and now I can find the peptides in the library (only with the dat files, not the msf or PDresult), but it still doesn't show up as a target peptide. I could then manually add them as library matches to the target peptides, but I don't really understand why it would not do this automatically. I played around with a lot of peptide and transition settings but nothing worked to make them appear.
What could be an explanation for this, Is there anything I am missing?

Thanks,
Susanne

Specifying Integration Boundaries
(28 responses) jrenders 2020-11-09

Hi there,
My small molecule analysis methods produce some pretty ugly peaks for a few analytes. Skyline does its best, but I do not expect any integration algorithm could figure out some of my data. What I have been searching for to fix the problem is some place to specify explicit integration boundaries. In reading back on support, I understand that "explicit retention time" and "window" will get me close but these are more "suggestive" to skyline (and in fact do not work for my peaks). Integrating a peak and then rt-clicking and hitting "Apply Peak to All" also seems more suggestive than explicit and does not work. I would like to have skyline integrate all peak area between two specified RT's without any consideration to inflection points or anything else and then apply this setting across the whole batch for that particular molecule. Is that possible at this time? Thanks!

saving all transition image files at once and adjusting based on y-axis for selected peak
(1 response) jiwon hong 2021-07-20

Hello Skyline team,

My name is Jiwon and I am currently a graduate student at Korea University.

I have been using skyline for a few months, but couldn't find a solution for a very time consuming/repetitive job which lead me here.

I wish to save the image files of the transitions: 3 files (total, light, and heavy) for each peptide with a specific pattern name.
For peptide sequence XXXX,
I wish to save the total image file as XXXX_a, light as XXXX_e and heavy as XXXX_s in a designated directory (they can all be in the same directory) in .jpg format.

Currently, I was only able to save the files through right clicking > Save image as one by one, and was wondering if skyline is capable of saving all the images at once.

And also, would it be possible to leave the x-axis and only auto adjust the y-axis based on the selected region only?
An example file is attached below (skyline_adj : wanted scale, skyline_no adj: default image)

Thank you in advance!

Sincerly,

How does Skyline treat shared fragment ions between precursors of same peptide from MSE data?
(2 responses) Juan C. Rojas E. 2021-07-07

Hi Skyline team,

I would like to confirm how skyline treats a fragment ion that is produced from multiple precursor ions of the same peptide when the data is acquired with MSE. Without the use of IMS it is not possible to discern from which precursor the fragment ion is being produced due to the lack of quadrupole isolation.

When the integrated fragment area is summarized for the peptide and a transition for the same fragment exists in two (or more) precursors, is the area of this "repeated" transition summed twice (or more) or does Skyline recognize it is a repeated value and only counts it once?

As always, thank you for your time and help.
Sincerely,
Juan C.

Exporting all peaks and mass accuracy for chromatograms
(4 responses) thomas hopf 2017-07-24
Dear Skyline developers,

I am trying to set up an automated evaluation scheme for peak picking outside of Skyline. For this, it would be very nice to have access to all candidate peaks and their associated mass errors. While I see that information in the GUI, I wasn't able to fully access the underlying data so far.

1) When exporting the chromatograms for all of the precursors, besides the intensities is it somehow possible to get the corresponding mass error/accuracy for each time point? In the reports, I only seem to be able to get the error for the one chosen peak per precursor.

2) For each precursor, is it possible to get a list of all candidate peaks chosen by the Skyline heuristics?

3) I seem to be able to extract some of the above information by exporting the mProphet peak features; however the associated mass errors for the mProphet candidate peaks seem to differ quite substantially from nearby Skyline peaks. How does this occur?

4) Can the mProphet features be automatically extracted using a command-line parameter?

Thanks for your help!

export fasta of all verified proteins from Skyline
(5 responses) kguehrs 2021-07-15

Hello Skyline team,

Perhaps this matter was already asked but I could not find any answer after I drastically limited my search to "export fasta".

I have done a DIA analysis of some special tissues from an model organism. The basis for the analysis was a rather large fasta database of not so good quality which I used as the background proteome. The analysis of the run data was done with Umpire/Fragpipe and imported into Skyline for visualization and curation. I did quite a bit of manual refinement and came up with a status in which I erased a lot of identified by the search engines proteins that do not match my quality restriction. Besides the generation of a spectral library I would like to also create a fasta file of either all or a specified fraction of the proteins remaining after the curation of the data. This fasta coould be used for other purposes or as a core background proteome that could be further expanded by additional data.

Is there any chance to export the proteins remaining after curation as a fasta file from Skyline. If there is no direct way, can you propose an other tool or procedure to do so from any Skyline generated report.

Best Karl-Heinz

Filtering a Skyline document for protein length

MS/MS ion rank and type for full scan data
(13 responses) roman sakson 2021-07-12

Hi Skyline Team,

I am using the "show ion rank and type" feature for full scan targeted MS/MS analysis (=PRM). The feature makes my life a lot easier than before, thanks a lot! I have, however, a question: for a peptide that was detected quite confidently, I see a color code in the MS/MS that is perfectly matching my PRM XICs on the left (see first screenshot). When I switch to the show ion rank and type view, I am only getting a few matches for the MS/MS (see second screenshot). My library ion match tolerance is 0,5 m/z and what I have here are high resolution MS/MS orbitrap data. I wonder, why is my ion matching so poor when matching ion rank and type?

Thank you!

Problem importing Brucker Tims-TOF Pro data in docker container
(9 responses) m j noga 2021-04-23

Dear Skyline Support team,

With a larger team of bioinformaticians and developers we are prototyping data processing and analysis workflow based on Skyline. In one of the use cases we performing targeted MS1 feature extraction using from the TimsTOF Pro data. We already successfully tested the workflow on Windows, both via GUI and command line and we are right now at the stage of transferring it to containerized environment on our Linux cluster.

As a first stage we are just using official docker image (https://hub.docker.com/r/chambm/pwiz-skyline-i-agree-to-the-vendor-licenses), but we experiencing a high number of import failures with the following exception:

Unhandled Exception: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

When attempting to import a single file multiple times it fails 30-40% of the cases, at random stage during import (see example import log attached).
We invoke Skyline by:

docker run -it --rm -v /Users/m/surfdrive2/Glycopeptides/data:/data \
proteowizard/pwiz-skyline-i-agree-to-the-vendor-licenses wine SkylineCmd --dir=/data \

--log-file=output/import_log.txt > data/output/import_console_log.txt 

Setting up options like '--import-process-count' or '--import-threads' doesn't seem to have any influence.

We already tested this using docker on Linux and OS X hosts with similar error rates.

We do not see this issue when running the same workflow on Agilent Q-ToF data, which may point out this is somehow linked to reading Bruker data.

Despite high failure rates we are able to import our 40-sample test dataset in the end (with up to 9 re-tries) and the final results are identical as on Windows.

I am wondering if you could help us with fixing this problem. Is this a Proteowizard issue or Wine? Should we contact proteowizard support directly? Our software engineer is eager to get involved, but would need some support and feedback to get started.

We will appreciate any help you might provide.

Duplicate transitions
(2 responses) hober 2021-02-22

Hi,
I regularly perform screening of peptides where I look for all potential +1 and +2 product ions from the different precursors I have selected. However, I often end up with cases where there are multiple identical precursor ion-product ion pairs, e.g. a b3 ion with the same m/z as a y3 ion and so forth.
This is unfortunately not limited to identical m/z, but also includes product ions with small differences in m/z that after rounding by the MS control software end up with the same m/z.

Would it be possible to implement something similar to the "Remove Repeated Peptides", but for transitions in Skyline?

humble plea for peak boundary feature
(3 responses) Will Thompson 2021-06-21

Dear Brendan and Brian,

I have a plea for a feature that would save us a ton of time, and I hope would benefit many and would be pretty simple to implement. I would like to ask for a "Apply Peak Boundaries To All" feature in the right-click menu on the chromatogram window. I don't know what the back-end functionality of the "apply peak to all" or "...to subsequent" is, but it seems to be hopelessly broken and we spend a ton of time manually curating some peaks that have odd shapes or have not great S/N. My vision for this new feature is that if i integrate a peak and click the "Apply Peak Boundary To All" button, Skyline would just blindly apply those peak boundaries to that analyte across the document. No questions asked, no peak detection, just update the start and end time for the integration for every replicate in the document. Currently, in order to accomplish this task we need to integrate one replicate, then copy the table for the given retention time out from the doc grid, paste down for the replicates we need (make sure to not go too many replicates down!), save as a peak boundary file renaming key columns, then import the peak boundaries. The whole process seems such a waste of time for something that would seemingly be very easy to keep within Skyline. As with many things, I probably overestimate the simplicity but I hope it can be done. This would save us potentially hours in curation per plate of multiplexed quantitative metabolomics data.

Your humble beggar of features,

Will

Hello Nick,
I tried search results using FragPipe and raw files. However, when I tried to import the search results in skyline, there is an error report showing that I need to have mzxml files instead for import.
I am not sure how to solve this. I think the reason is because I have run mzxml format files before and it saves the previous cached data. I am not sure if I need to remove previous cached data because they are from a separate skyline file. At the same time, I really need skyline to import raw files instead so that I can start a ion mobility library (if mzxml files are imported, ion mobility library will show no result.)
I have attached the error report below. Thank you so much!

Best,

Structural and isotope-heavy modifications occurring on the same residue
(3 responses) lpino 2021-06-30

Hi team! I've been banging my head against this one for a little while, so I thought I'd reach out to see if you can save me from any more headache!

Context: histone PTM analysis with D3-acetyl chemical derivatization. This means peptides will have biological (structural) modifications (including "normal" acetyl), and then any unmodified lysines and peptide N-termini should be D3-acetylated.

I did a paired DDA+DIA for each sample. Searched the DDA with Byonic (PD), built a spectral library with Bibliospec (Skyline), and added the detected peptides to the Skyline doc for quant by DIA XIC (Library Explorer > Associate proteins > Add).

Okay here's where I'm getting turned around. I am getting the craziest permutations of modification + D3 in the target list, and can't for the life of me interpret them! Some of these peptides have the same residue doubly-modified, e.g. a lysine with both structural "Acetyl" and then also isotope heavy "Acetyl:2H(3)". They all have a library spectra associated with them, so is this perhaps Skyline forcing all lysines to be "Acetyl:2H(3)" in addition to any other structural modification they might have?

I have no idea what I did wrong, but this is admittedly the deepest foray I've ever made into PTM analysis and I'm probably hacking some features together to get this to work. Is there some other way I should set up my Peptide Settings > Modifications? Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated! Minimal Skyline doc example attached.

Thank you!

Question about library intensity for small molecule transition list
(2 responses) stefanie 2021-06-24

Hello,

I am investigating Skyline's small molecule interface for our metabolomics data processing workflow. I am new to Skyline, so I apologize if this question has been asked and answered.

I am interested in importing an assay library (or transition list) with retention times and relative fragment intensities. So far, I can successfully import a transition list with these fields: PrecursorName, PrecursorFormula, PrecursorMz, ProductMz, ProductCharge, PrecursorAdduct, PrecursorRT, PrecursorRTWindow, PrecursorCE.

What is the best way for me to import this component of our spectrum data for my metabolites to Skyline? Is there a field name that would allow me to attach relative intensities to these entries as well? I noticed the LibraryIntensity field was present in the "Skyline format.tsv" import file for Webinar 10 (proteomics) but not present in the list of column names for small molecule transition lists in a previous support ticket (2018, see link below). If I'm trying to use the wrong tool, could you suggest an appropriate alternative for me in creating a Skyline-friendly library?

Skyline failure_metabolomics_methods containing high number of transitions
(5 responses) anna illiano 2021-06-18

Good afternoon.
I have a couple of problems in using Skyline for metabolomics.

  1. The software does not allow me to simultaneously monitor all the transitions present in the method (more than 400). I need to create multiple methods to analyze a single sample.
    When I try to upload a sample by inserting all the target molecules in the skyline, I get this error message:
    "Failed importing results file
    An item with the same key has already been added. "
  2. Even if I prepare methods containing fewer transitions, for some molecules Skyline does not allow me to evaluate the TICs even if by using the Analyst Software (Sciex) I am able to see and integrate that transitions and TICs.

Can you help me?

Thanks
Anna

Skyline runs quite slow in extracting chromatograms from DIA raw files
(14 responses) ref p 2021-06-14

Hello Skyline team,

Recently, I have been performing a real whole-proteome DIA analysis of which the raw data was acquired on a QE-HF-X MS instrument both in DDA and DIA mode a week ago. According to your provided DIA tutorial, I started doing this by using Import Peptide Search wizard under "Import Results" "One at a time". At the very beginning, because of the very large dataset (35*60min run, a total of ~25 GB), I think, Skyline v21.1 presents a very low performance in extracting chromatograms for 9795 proteins including 6 transitions per peptide with automatical mProphet model training at the same time.

At present, after nearly 20 hours raw data importing, this step was still not completed yet, which clearly makes me astonished very!

My questions therefore come across in this way, they are:

  • How to make Skyline work faster?
  • Is Skyline-daily more helpful? In Skyline support forum, I learned that someone got good results after being changed form Skyline 20.2 to Skyline-daily. [https://skyline.ms/announcements/home/support/thread.view?entityId=6d9b9a8a-8e7e-1039-a0a7-e465a393a734&_docid=thread%3A6d9b9a8a-8e7e-1039-a0a7-e465a393a734]
  • Is there an optimal workflow available? As an alternative approach, I think, I will try to import the raw data by Import Result one by one using default peak picking algorithm. Subsequently, I will train an mProphet peak picking model using the imported DIA dataset and apply it for the same dataset. Finally, if I am a lucky man, I would get an expected quantitative results which then will be used in R analysis. How about this idea?

Best,
Guihua Jia

Crosslinking Quantification

Hi,
I am using Skyline for quantifying the cross-link and in many cases the precursor mass is not matching with raw file's precursor mass, though I am putting right modification. What could be the reason?

IMS Filter Error with version 20.2.0.343
(13 responses) Juan C. Rojas E. 2021-01-25

Dear support,

I am having some issues with applying the IMS filter windows generated from the in-built predictor for DDA data with IMS separation. The data was generated with a Synapt G2-Si.

The steps I usually follow are:

  • Load DDA data
  • Filter reliable peptides
  • Use IMS Predictor
  • Re-import results to apply IMS filter
  • (New due to change in settings) Set Window type as Resolving Power and set value of "15"; this was the optimal value found for my data in the past. BTW, why was this setting changed out of the library generation window? Shouldn't the resolving power settings be set prior to generating the IMS library?

This worked fine in version 20.1.0.155. However, I recently updated to the newer version 20.2.0.343 and every time I try to do the re-import I get an error message "An item with the same key has already been added.". Additional text (in German) attached.

I also tried removing the file, save, set IMS library created previously, set IMS filter settings, and then import the file again. This time the file loads, but no IMS filter is applied.

Can you give me some insight for this problem? What else could I share to help?

Sincerely,
JC

"Error generating quanpedia databank" when exporting method
andy shapanis 2021-06-21
Hi Skyline team,

Love the software.

I am having issues exporting a method (Xevo-TQXS), which appears to only persist when using SSRC to calculate retention time windows.

I can successfully export methods in every other capacity (that i have tried) but it seems as soon as I use the SSRCalc to get predicted retention times, I get an error exporting.

I can export as transition list and then manually put them into a method but this will be time consuming as i plan to have a lot of peptides, this is just a tester subset i am using at the moment.

below is the printed error, hopefully you can help?

many thanks,

Andy

extract chromatograms from tims TOF
(6 responses) tleonova 2021-06-18
Dear Skyline team support,

I am quite new to Skyline and I try to use it for MS1 filtering and spectra library building.
I have data acquired on Bruker tims TOF. I used MGF files created by Bruker software for the search in Proteome Discoverer 2.2.

I want to import peptide search from Proteome Discoverer (.msf). But I got stuck at the Extract Chromatograms window. The MGF files were missing.

I found that you already answered to the similar request. I realised that I have to add RAW files for chromatogram extraction. In my case RAW files are .d folders. But when I try to locate these files by clicking on the Find button, navigating to the RAW file location, and clicking these .d folders, nothing happens.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind regards,
Tatiana

Build library from MSfragger output pepxml
(1 response) af1234 2021-06-19

I have a set of 16 synthetic peptides (heavy Cterm R/K) which I ran individually and as pool in DDA on a Qexactive and searched using MSfragger. I am now trying to import the results into Skyline to build targeted assays but it seems there are some issues.

I tried the usual import DDA search to build a library but once I load the pepxml files there are not a correspondent MGF file and an error. I cannot generate a library within MSfragger because there are not enough peptides across all samples for RT alignment.

Are there some preferred settings/tricks for import MSfragger output?

Thanks!

Hello Skyline team,

I tried to import MSFragger results into skyline. I followed the procedure given in tutorial on the following website by the develeopers of FragPipe.

https://msfragger.nesvilab.org/tutorial_skyline.html

I used the default method "DIA_Umpire_speclib" and the analysis by Fragpipe was successful. I can see the expected number of mzml, pepxml, calibrated.mgf, and interact....pep.xml files in the MSFragger subdirectory of the directory that also contains the raw files. This subdirectory also contains the protein.fas and tsv files generated by MSFragger.

The import of the interact...pep.xml files however failed with the error message shown in the attached file. For me, all the files described in the nesvilab tutorial are available and assume that here is either some file structure problem or some more syntax problem that I do not understand.

Hello ,

We are working on tool which automates the manual process of creating MRM method using skyline and MassLynx.
we are using Water's Xevo TQ S instrument.
test was to find the min dwell supported to create write MRM methods.
Attaching the file where command passed to Skyline is shown and output of command runner also been provided.
Does Command runner splits the method into multiple experiment files?
Kindly suggest if anything is wrong with using command runner.

Creation of spectral library using DIA without DDA
(1 response) mjgou 2021-06-15
Dear Skyline Team,

In our lab, we are currently using a 6560 Ion-Mobility qTOF mass spectrometer from Agilent for untargeted proteomics studies and Spectrum Mill is used to generate peptides/proteins identification lists. We are particularly interested in using Skyline to create and manage specific spectral libraries for our clinical applications. However, our workflow does not include the prior acquisitions in DDA to build the library due to the limited amount of samples. We would like to directly use the DIA acquisition files to create this library. Do you think this workflow could be compatible with Skyline?

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,

Marie

Peak Integration
(2 responses) muluneh 2021-06-10
Hi, I have been using Skyline for the last 8 months and I really liked the way it works. I am analyzing MRM data generated with the AB SCIEX instrument. Some of the proteins I work with are less abundant and have a high background. So I need to manually integrate the peaks. We use two fragment ions for each peptide we collect MS data for. Skyline displays the two peaks simultaneously and when I try to edit a peak (Peak B in the Figure) for one of the fragments by moving the vertical line, all the peaks (Peak A) are being affected. Are there any means that I can process the two fragments separately/independently? For now, I am manually deselecting the peak I don't edit, then export the data, and then process the second peak. I am working with several proteins, and this app[roach is taking too much time. Just looking for an efficient approach... Thanks! Muluneh

Request: Visualize reporter ions in "Library Match" window
(2 responses) Juan C. Rojas E. 2021-06-11

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to visualize modification specific reporter ions in the library match or if it is a feature that could be implemented.

I have managed to show some modification specific neutral losses (Slide 1; e.g. y7-331), but there are several other ions that I can annotate to derivatization tag specific fragments that I regularly check and would be really nice if this were also highlighted for my validation steps and consideration for fragment transitions to track.

As always, thanks for the awesome work and support.

Specifying height and width of chromatograms
(1 response) jaltman 2021-06-11

My lab is new to Skyline (and peptide MS), which we're using to analyze VERY simple peptide mixtures eluted from engineered MHC molecules as part of our reagent quality control.

I've asked members of my lab to capture chromatograms in a database as in the attached file. For database display, it would be helpful if all of the chromatograms had the exact same height and width (say 4" wide by 0.75" tall). I've tried to find this in Skyline and on the Support pages, but I haven't been able to find how to do it (assuming it's possible).

Help with this would be much appreciated.

small molecule sMRM - chromatogram information unavailable
(4 responses) paul leonhardt 2021-06-09

Hi Skyline team,

i currently use skyline as open-source tool to analyse data that has been acquired on a Sciex 5500 qqq instrument. My research focuses on nucleotides and their modifications, that's why i often need to detect the same [M+H]+ mass during different retention times. Currently I only want to get a quick overview of the data, so i need the chromatogram, peak area and retention times. The problem i have is that skyline most of the time only recognizes one of my isobaric sMRM transitions.

I have acquired my data as full Range MRM scan and also as scheduled MRM scan. When creating the transition list for the full range MRM data i did not have so many problems - apart from adjusting the integration manually. But now when i want to use scheduled MRM data most of the time skyline does not find the corresponding chromatogram. Is there a way to assign this manually?

Attached you find a file for demonstration which includes 4 results, two of them are full range and two scheduled - you will see that some transitions are only detected within the full range files even though the peaks are present.

I'd really appreciate if you take a look into it

Kind regards,
Paul

So, I am trying to get the Precursor Ions for the following 3 peptides listed below. I am unsure if I have my sequences wrong, but the values that Skyline is returning don't seem to be correct. I'm using a Agilent Ultivo QQQ. And when I analyze, I don't see those masses. Also, a quick literature search leads me to believe they are incorrect.

Goserelin: XHWSYXLRP. Precursor Ion: 590.808319

Desmopressin. CYFQNCPRG. Precursor Ion: 601.2475

Skyline for peptide search using Waters MSe data
(3 responses) ywu1 2021-06-07

Hi there,

Curious to the ability of Skyline to perform a peptide search using MSe data generated on a Waters Synapt G2Si. Reading some of the older posts, it sounds like PLGS was the preferred route prior to Skyline, just curious if this was addressed since you have added so many features as of late. Additionally, If this is indeed possible, would skyline be able to read the ion mobility data as well?

Linear fit in log space
(5 responses) schen19 2021-06-08

Dear Skyline team,

I have a question about the Linear in Log Space regression fit in Skyline. My initial understanding is that the equation of the calibration curve using this fit is Log(Y) = slope*Log(X) + Y-intercept (Y is RatioLightToHeavy, X is Analyte Concentration). However, when I tried to use this equation to calculate X from Y using this equation, the result does not agree with the Calculated Concentration, which is the quantification value given directly by Skyline.

I tried to do a similar regression fit (Log-transformed both X and Y, then do a linear regression fit) in another software and it gives the same slope but different intercept. When using the slope and intercept given by that software and the Log(Y) = slope*Log(X) + Y-intercept equation, I get the same quant value as the Calculated Concentration given by Skyline. Based on this observation, the problem seems to be related to the Y-intercept value given by Skyline.

I am trying to understand what equation is Skyline using for the Linear in Log Space regression fit. Could you provide some guidance on that?

Thank you,
Shimin

about ms/ms filtering
(7 responses) minyg98 2021-06-06

Dear Skyline team

Hi! This is Minyeong Ji from the Center for ProteoGenome Research in Korea University.

I'm using SureQuant Method but I want to customize it.

Let me explain about how I want to customize it first.

First, the SIL peptides are scanned with 7,500 resolution

Once the Quant Mode is triggered, the SIL peptides are scanned one more time but this time with 60,000 resolution.

I already gave it a try this way, and when I opened the raw file on Skyline, the profile looked like the image I attached.

So I want to know if I can give a filter with resolution so only scans with 60,000 resolution can be used for drawing profiles.

I tried to use the MS/MS filtering in Transition Settings but I don't think it filtered scans with 7,500 resolution.

Could you help me please?

Best regards, Minyeong Ji

Spectral Library Building – Option: Filter for document peptides Fails
(3 responses) peter r mosen 2021-06-02

Dear Skyline team,

for a MRM-assay I tried to generate a “reduced/tailored” spectral library covering only the peptides of interest using as input multiple, already existing *.blib-files (generated from DDA-data). To do so, I used the option: Filter for document peptides. The merged, resulting spectral library gets generated however it does not only contain the MS2 spectra corresponding to my peptides of interest. I.e. the “merged, reduced” spectral library (which got filtered for my 70 document peptides) comprised as many peptides as the original, full spectral library. No filtering takes place.

According to Kaipo’s post (https://skyline.ms/announcements/home/support/thread.view?rowId=25366) I understand the “filter for document peptides” option, that it will consider only the activated (ticked off peptides per protein) in the target window and it will ignore deactivated peptides, right ? I am using Windows 10, Skyline 21.1.0.146 (alpha), however I had the same problem also with your latest Skyline daily version. Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I am currently setting up a PRM method, but I am having some issues with one of my files. I have 42 peptides and set up a PRM run on a QExactive without full-scan or scheduling.
The first time the sample was loaded in to Skyline I was only able to detect peaks for 3 peptides. I was not sure if it is an instrument method setup issue, so I repeated the run this time only including 13 peptides in the inclusion list (with two detected in the previous run included), but this time I have no chromatograms for any of the peptides. Looking at the raw file there is no visible problem and the two runs look very similar. I also did a DDA run to see if I made a mistake with the setup, but it does not seem to be the case.

I must be missing something in the setup but I am not able to find where the problem is.

I have run into many instances in processing DIA data that out of 6 top fragment ions some are clearly contaminated and often they are one of the higher ranked ones. Looking at mass accuracy they are clearly off (mass error >10ppm) while the rest of the fragment ions are spot on (<5ppm). Ranking clearly does not remove these. Sometimes they are just slightly shifted in retention or show a shoulder on the peak. I attach an example.

Thanks,
Tomas

Unable to build spectral library and import results
(1 response) S.K. 2021-05-25

Hi,
I am unable to build a spectral library or import results during my proteomics analysis. I had followed all the instructions from the tutorials as well. An error message shows up whenever I try to perform either of these tasks. Could you please guide me so that I can resolve these issues? I have attached a screenshot the two error messages that I encountered.

Thank you very much!
