Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (JASMS) is welcoming submissions for an upcoming Special Issue on Computational Mass Spectrometry to coincide with the 2023 ASMS Asilomar Conference of the same theme.

Computational methods are ubiquitously used in mass spectrometry, they play an indispensable role in the field and have a long history of being applied to all its aspects from data acquisition to data interpretation. These methods include signal processing, search and pattern matching algorithms. Recently, the application of machine learning and modern artificial intelligence methods to science and society have increased dramatically, with new and exciting applications for mass spectrometry. At the same time, access to large amounts of open publicly available mass spectrometry data has enabled new avenues for scientific inquiries. This Special Issue will cover methods and applications of computational mass spectrometry.

For readers, this Special Issue will be an easily identifiable source of high-quality papers describing new computational tools and methods. For authors, the Special Issue will provide a venue of increased visibility for their work. Topics appropriate for this special issue include but are not limited to:

  • Interpretation of mass spectrometry data, such as identification, quantitation, and multiomics data integration.
  • Data reuse and repository scale analyses
  • Data sharing and dissemination
  • Prediction methods for molecular properties (e.g., collision-cross section, MS/MS, retention time)
  • Computational methods for single-cell mass spectrometry
  • Computational mass spectrometry for clinical applications
  • Proteogenomics analyses
  • Biological and spatial analyses

The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2024.
