Compound Data Store or Compound Database – Kinda the same thing….
TF has the concept of bring in a data you know about compounds and storing it for later use.
This we call the Compound Data Store (CDS), but what’s in a name… Its a an XML file that contains information about the compound.
The picture above shows this data in excel. It contains information like the compound name, experiment type, collicion energy, retention time, fragments relationships.
Attached here is a copy of the csv template TEMPLATE.
This information can be edited in excel and uploaded into TF to add to a database or to alter the data base. The changes will be reflected in the TF CDS module.
Once the data is in the CDS, a method developer can utilize it to create processing methods which in turn can be used in syncing acquistion methods in the Master Method.
A blog post to come later this week will highlight the use of the information in the Auto-SRM feature.
A quick note is that the CDS is not automatically turned on at installation.
The user will have to configure the option and restart TF to take advantage of this feature.
