MZmine 2 Data-Preprocessing To Enhance Molecular Networking Reliability

MZmine 2 Data-Preprocessing To Enhance Molecular Networking Reliability
Florent Olivon, Marc Litaudon, David Touboul, Fanny Roussi, Gwendal Grelier
Molecular networking is becoming more and more popular into the metabolomic community to organize tandem mass spectrometry (MS2) data. Even though this approach allows the treatment and comparison of large data sets, several drawbacks related to the MS-Cluster tool routinely used on the Global Natural Product Social Molecular Networking platform (GNPS) limit its potential. MS-Cluster cannot distinguish between chromatography well-resolved isomers as retention times are not taken into account. Annotation with predicted chemical formulas is also not implemented and semiquantification is only based on the number of MS2 scans. We propose to introduce a data-preprocessing workflow including the preliminary data treatment by MZmine 2 followed by a homemade Python script freely available to the community that clears the major previously mentioned GNPS drawbacks. The efficiency of this workflow is exemplified with the analysis of six fractions of increasing polarities obtained from a sequential supercritical CO2 extraction of Stillingia lineata leaves.
