Mass Spectrometry-Based Research

Digital library of Indian medicinal plants and their metabolites is a mass spectrometry-based bioinformatics tool for new drug discovery and exploration of Indian medicinal plants chemical diversity (

•Identification of plant species based on their chemical fingerprint.
•Discovery of known bioactive compounds from previously unknown sources.
•Distribution of known compounds in different biological source   (Plants/herbs).
•Identification of known/new derivatives of bioactive compounds in different   biological source (Plants/herbs).

Tandem mass spectrum database for rapid identification of known compounds directly from crude extract using LC-MS/MS data (
