Feature-Based Molecular Networking appeared in Nature Methods

Congratulations to Louis-Félix Nothias from the group of Pieter Dorrestein: The article “Feature-based molecular networking in the GNPS analysis environment” has appeared in Nature Methods, and we are happy to be part of this research. (We are lacking behind a little bit with our news.)

In short, FBMN introduces chromatography separation into the molecular networking workflow of GNPS; features with similar mass (and potentially similar MS/MS) but different retention time are now treated separately. See the article for details.
