Inspect is a general purpose database search algorithm, with an emphasis on efficiently and confidently identifying modified peptides. It includes special scoring models for phosphorylation which allow for increased accuracy. In addition, Inspect implements the MS-Alignment algorithm for discovery of unanticipated modifications in blind mode.
