pFind Studio: a computational solution for mass spectrometry-based proteomics


pLink® 2 is developed as an upgrade of pLink 1. Compared with pLink 1, pLink 2 provides a graphical user interface, and is ~40 times faster with a newly designed index structure. There are also some improvements in the precision.

Happy New Year 2019, and please see greetings from your pLink developers!
