enviPat-package: Calculation of isotope patterns, stick profiles (envelopes) and centroids/intensoids for mass spectrometry.


Fast and memory-efficient calculation of isotope patterns (fine structures) for up to very large molecules, based on three different algorithms. Subsequent convolution of isotope patterns with a peak shape function to theoretical envelopes (profiles). Based on envelopes, valley detection and centroidization/intensoid calculation. Allows for batch processing of chemical formulas and interpolation of measurement resolutions. Includes a wrapper combining all of the above functionalities.

Furthermore, includes (1) a check for consistency of chemical formulas, (2) a check for molecules with overlapping isotope patterns, (3) a list of all stable isotopes, (4) a list of different resolution data sets for Thermo Orbitrap and QExactive high-resolution mass spectrometers and (5) a list of adducts formed during electorspray ionization (ESI).
