Summary of "Omics Forecasting: Predictive Calculations Permit the Rapid Interpretation of High-Resolution Mass Spectral Data from Complex Mixtures."

For some complex mixtures, chromatographic techniques are insufficient to separate the large numbers of compounds present. In addition, these mixtures often contain compounds with similar or identical molecular masses and shared fragmentation transitions. Advancements in mass spectrometry have provided more and more detailed molecular profiles with significant increases in resolution. This has led to a capacity to distinguish a very large number of compounds in complex mixtures, providing overwhelming data sets. The approach of calculating molecular formulae from a mass list has become more and more problematic as the number of signals has increased exponentially, to the point that it has become impossible to manually interpret the thousands of mass signals. The current approach is to calculate a list of possible formulae that fall within a specific mass error of the observed signal. Then, one must look for possible structures that can be derived from each entry on the list of formulae. However, an alternative approach is to anticipate the possible structures of a particular set of compounds, such as red wine pigments, and then compare the ion signals against a predicted list. To that end, starting with known wine pigment types, we have generated a set of expected wine pigment variants based on known derivatives of condensed tannin oligomers, anthocyanins, and fermentation products. After accounting for the ability to distinguish compounds by mass spectrometry, over 1 million results were generated consisting of known and anticipated wine pigments. A comparison with a small sample of wine phenolic fractions show a large number of matches, suggesting that this approach may be helpful. Further analysis of mass spectral fragmentation is needed to resolve isomers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
