The integration of Phenyx in proteomics pipelines is optimized via a daemon. The Phenyx Daemon manually and automatically performs batch submissions from any mass spectrometer, including preprocessing steps such as data conversion and peaklist filtering.
The Phenyx Daemon is designed to perform automated submissions of MS/MS spectra to Phenyx. A batch experiment in the Phenyx Daemon submits mass spectra to a workflow. This workflow is a set of dependant actions that can run on a local system or on a remote server. Typically, these actions can include pre-processing steps such as raw data processing, data filtering and format conversions as well as submission to Phenyx as a search engine. The daemon keeps track of already-submitted datasets and displays the status of jobs in a session.
The Phenyx Daemon can run on any PC that has access to MS data. It uses submission profiles (a predefined set of parameters) on PhenyxServer or PhenyxOnline.
