# Specter
Specter is an algorithm for the targeted analysis of data-independent acquisition mass spectrometry proteomics experiments. It can analyze data from any instrument type and window acquisition scheme. The required user inputs are
1. A DIA data file in (centroided) mzML format.
2. A spectral library in blib format.
3. A mass accuracy parameter, specified in parts-per-million.
Specter is an algorithm for the targeted analysis of data-independent acquisition mass spectrometry proteomics experiments. It can analyze data from any instrument type and window acquisition scheme. The required user inputs are a DIA data file in centroided mzML format, a spectral library in blib format, and a mass accuracy parameter, specified in parts-per-million.
The raw output of Specter is a .csv file describing the total ion intensities (= sum of fragment ion intensities) of each precursor in the spectral library at each retention time point of the experiment. A snippet of the typical raw output file looks like this:
