Abstract [en]

Multivariate statistical methods, such as Principal Component Analysis (PCA), have been used extensively over the past decades as tools for extracting significant information from complex data sets. As such they are very powerful and in combination with an understanding of underlying chemical principles, they have enabled researchers to develop useful models. A drawback with the methods is that they do not have the ability to incorporate any physical / chemical model of the system being studied during the statistical analysis. In this paper we present a method that can be used as a complement to traditional chemometric tools in finding patterns in mass spectrometry data. The method uses a pre-defined set of equally spaced sequences that are assumed to be present in the data. Allowing for some uncertainty in the peak locations due to the uncertainties for the measurement instrumentation, the measured spectra are then projected onto this set. It is shown that the resulting scores can be used to identify homologous series in measured mass spectra that differ significantly between different measured samples. As opposed to PCA, the loading vectors, in this case the pre-defined homologous series, are readily interpretable.
