Table 1 The filtering of MS/MS to peptide correlations by the X!TANDEM algorithm. The LC–ESI–MS/MS results from X!TANDEM were parsed into an SQL Server database and a complex key or SHA1-HASH algorithm was used to create a non-redundant list of the best fit MS/MS to peptides in terms of charge state and amino acid sequence

From: The proteins cleaved by endogenous tryptic proteases in normal EDTA plasma by C18 collection of peptides for liquid chromatography micro electrospray ionization and tandem mass spectrometry
