## xQuest/xProphet
Identification and statistical validation of cross-linked peptides identified by MS
Chemical cross-linking of proteins or protein complexes in combination with mass spectrometry is an increasingly used technique to obtain low resolution structural restraints.
The software xQuest is designated to identify cross-linked peptides from LC-MS/MS spectra [1].

#### xQuest spectrum
xQuest example spectrum: On the top left corner the sequence of the cross-linked peptide is shown. In the spectrum, matched common fragment ions (green) and cross-linker containing fragment ions (red) are indicated with diamonds. On the peptide sequences, matched ions are indicated with red and green ticks.
The software xProphet is designated to estimate false discovery rates (FDRs) in cross-linking datasets [2]. The software is based on a target-decoy search strategy for cross-linked peptides.
A detailed step by step protocol of the experimental and the computational procedure has been published [3].
