Development of next generation mass spectra data base, Shin-MassBank


  • In progress
  • Database Integration Coordination Program (DICP)
  • Projects funded in FY 2023-Full-fledged

Name and affiliation of Research Director


Professor, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University

Outline of R&D

We will renew MassBank and build a pipeline for the accumulation of biological mass spectra, Shin-MassBank. MB-POST for raw data repository and MassBank in silico which contains predictive mass spectra will be newly established, and we will create a system to store high-quality measured mass spectra in MassBank. Next-generation databases will be developed from the point of view of the database users, so that meet the needs of life science researchers.
