The installation package provided by Protein Metrics integrates Preview and Byonic into Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Proteome Discoverer software as nodes. There is no cost for the nodes, but running searches using the nodes requires that the standalone versions of Preview/Byonic be installed and licensed on the same computer as Proteome Discoverer.
You can download the nodes matching to your Proteome Discoverer version here:
Installation and running instructions are provided in the downloaded zip package as a pdf file. Briefly:
- You must have a licensed and installed copy of Proteome Discoverer.
- If not installed already, install standalone Preview and Byonic (part of the Protein Metrics software
suite), available from http://proteinmetrics.com/. Make sure the license is activated.
- Run the installers for the Preview node and/or the Byonic node. Note that there are separate
installers for the Preview node and the Byonic node.
- When running Preview/Byonic, use the templates “PMI-Preview Template.pdAnalysis” and
“PMI-Byonic Template.pdAnalysis” as starting points.
