The provided mzML file can be used as a test dataset for protein identification and quantitation software. It was generated from human embryonic kidney (HEK) cells that were either unlabelled or labelled with heavy SILAC (K6R6, unimod accession 188, PSI-MS Name: "Label:13C(6)"). Apart from different labelling, the HEK cells were kept in exactly the same conditions and harvested simultaneously. Light and heavy labelled proteins from HEK cell lysate were mixed in a certain ratio, digested with Trypsin and measured on a ThermoFisher QExactive mass spectrometer. A more detailed description on the generation of the dataset will soon be accessible at PRIDE.

The provided mzML file has been converted from Thermo RAW and slightly modified via msConvert (ProteoWizard). To reduce the filesize and to speed up analysis, it has further been filtered to contain only the data measured between 2,000 sec and 3,000 sec of the original LC-MS/MS run.
