Automatic Statistical Identification in Complex Spectra

Bioconductor version: Development (3.17)

With a set of pure metabolite reference spectra, ASICS quantifies concentration of metabolites in a complex spectrum. The identification of metabolites is performed by fitting a mixture model to the spectra of the library with a sparse penalty. The method and its statistical properties are described in Tardivel et al. (2017) .
