Get hands-on experience creating a Skyline document to measure quantitative differences in peptide expression using the MS1 scans from your data dependent acquisition (DDA) experiments. In this tutorial, you will generate a spectral library from a discovery data set, set up a Skyline document for MS1 filtering, import raw mass spectrometer data to extract precursor ion chromatograms from MS1 scans, with peak picking guided by MS/MS peptide identifications, and further process the resulting quantitative data in Skyline. If you are interested in label-free quantitative analysis of discovery data sets, this tutorial will give you a new tool set for your investigation. (41 pages)

On October 21st, 2014, the Skyline Team produced Webinar #1: Getting the Most Out of DDA Data with Skyline, another great resource for working with DDA data in Skyline.
On June 16th, 2015, the Skyline Team produced Webinar #8: DDA to Targeted: Differential Statistics with Skyline, An untargeted approach starting from all peptides detected in a DDA experiment reduced to proteins that appear to be changing in the samples.
On September 29, 2015 the Skyline Team produced Webinar #10: Working with Modifications in Skyline , with an in-depth discussion peptide modifications, importing PTMs, isotope labeling and importing large assay libraries, among other topics.
