The ASMS Computer Applications Interest Group will hold
a lunchtime workshop on Wednesday, June 5 at the ASMS
annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.
This year’s topic is “Analytical Data Storage and Exchange
using XML”, and will feature a presentation by James Duckworth
of Thermo Galactic and discussion of efforts underway to
develop official standards for representing analytical,
chemical, and biological data using XML.
The interest group meeting format is informal; if you are
working with or considering using XML to solve data storage
or exchange problems in your environment, please come and
participate. We will have a transparency projector available.
There is room for one or two more SHORT presentations (no more than 10 minutes). Please contact me if you wish to present.
Bring a lunch. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday,
12:15 – 1:30 pm, Grand VIII ballroom. Please refer to the
ASMS notice board for any last-minute changes. I look forward to seeing you there!

iMass 1.0 is a molecular mass and isotope distribution calculator for Mac OS X. It also computes molecular weights of peptides based on amino acid codes. A nice piece of software.
Finnigan has rolled out new software for de novo sequencing and an upgrade of the SEQUEST-based proteomics software just in time for the ABRF meeting in Austin. They also have a new proteomics workstation, but I couldn’t get the Thermofinnigan home page to let me see the link (IE5/Mac).
GNOME (open source) software for mass spectrometric data analysis of a variety of polymers : polyXmass.
MS Webmasters, it is time to update your old Mass Spectrometry on the Internet links. Any pages with the old Emory links (http://userwww.service.emory.edu/~kmurray/mslist.html or the really old http://tswww.cc.emory.edu/~kmurray/mslist.html) should update their links to the SpectroscopyNow/Basepeak link: http://www.spectroscopynow.com/Spy/ms/. The MS on the Internet link is now officially dead.
To find out what pages are linked to the old site, see below:

Welcome to my mass spectromery Web log or “blog” as they are called. Blogs are Web pages that consist of chronologically arranged lists similar to journal entries or news reports. The purpose of this blog is to record items of interest that I find on the Internet that I think will be of interest to the mass spectrometry community. I do this anyway as editor of Basepeak and the Mass Spectrometry Internet Resources FAQ; I’m hoping that blogging will make this easier. My philosophy from the early days of “Mass Spectrometry on the Internet” has been to try any Internet format and see how it plays with the MS crowd. Some things have worked and some haven’t. We’ll give this a go.
