CASMI published first challenges
In the Critical Assessment of Small Molecule Identification (CASMI) contest we are publishing a set of LC/MS and GC/MS spectra on www.casmi-contest.org, and call the community to identify the underlying compounds. In different categories we ask for the molecular formula and/or for the molecular structure. We now have deposited a first round of challenge spectra, and will add more over the course of the next weeks. If you are doing computational mass spectrometry, or you are an expert in spectral interpretation, or just started to learn mass spectrometry: these spectra help to "show off" your skills. Early in 2013, we will reveal the compounds, evaluate the submissions and call for papers in a special issue of the journal Metabolites, where the participants describe their efforts. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us at casmi2012(at)ipb-halle.de, or join the mailing lists.
