Spectronaut allows you to generate libraries in several different ways. The most intuitive and seamless manner is using Pulsar, the search engine developed at Biognosys, integrated in Spectronaut.

However, if you prefer to use an external search engine, Spectronaut supports the generation of libraries from most search engines (table 1).



Additionally, any search result can be reformatted into BGS Generic Format, which is a plain‑text file where each row represents a PSM. To know more about this format, please refer to the Spectronaut manual here.

If you would like to have your favorite search engine supported, please contact us here and together we can try to get the API and make it compatible in future software releases.
