PECAN (PEptide-Centric Analysis) is a tool for peptide detection directly from DIA data without the need of a spectral library. PECAN takes a list of peptide sequences and query each peptide against the DIA data (in centroid mzML format) and reports the best evidence of detection for each peptide. Percolator is used for false discovery rate FDR control.
