CHIMERYS

An AI-driven leap forward in peptide identification

CHIMERYS doubles the identification rate and the number of peptide identifications in single-shot full proteome DDA datasets, leading to 1.5-fold more protein group identifications, higher sequence coverage and more confident quantification in comparison to Sequest™ HT.
CHIMERYS excels at analyzing complex samples and enables more efficient measurements, wider isolation windows and shorter gradients to enhance proteomic throughput, and efficiency.

Left panel: schematic workflow of CHIMERYS. CHIMERYS predicts peptide properties using the INFERYS 2.0 deep learning framework. After a first search, INFERYS is recalibrated and learns to adapt to the experimental data at hand. The main search utilizes predicted fragment ion intensities and retention times for the deconvolution of chimeric spectra. Finally, all identifications are passed to Percolator for score aggregation and false discovery rate (FDR) estimation. Right panel: current summary of CHIMERYS’ capabilties.
