Create a list of all pseudospectra found in a GC-MS experiment of several samples.


Function constructExpPseudoSpectra creates an msp object containing all the patterns referenced to in the annotation. The first argument is the output of function matchSamples2Samples and contains the full annotation matrix and the pseudospectra of the known unknowns; the second is the msp object containing the standards that are actually found. Not meant to be called directly by the user.


constructExpPseudoSpectra(allMatches, standardsDB)



Result of a call to matchSamples2DB or matchSamples2Samples: a list containing the element annotation.


Database of standard spectra, in msp format.


A list of spectra. All spectra from the database that are referenced to in the annotation slot will be present, and will be followed by all unknown spectra. In order to be able to see which patterns in the experimental data are pointing to which spectra, an extra slot is added, containing the position of the reference spectrum in the original database (which is what the numbers of the annotation object are referring to). Renumbering this is impractical since some patterns may be seen as alternative annotations, but may have no hits of their own - including them would lead to rows containing only zeros.
