Figure 10.6.3: Selecting Groups.
Type a name for the sample group and select multiple samples (typically replicates) from below. Press “Add to Group” to finish group selection.
Figure 10.6.4 Naming and selecting sample groups.
Name a second group and select the experiments to add to this group. The previous group will be listed at the top of the page. Repeat to add as many groups as necessary.
Figure 10.6.5 Add as many groups as necessary.
Click “Next” at the bottom of the page once the desired groups are added.
Name the experiment analysis before submission.

Each column description:
- accession: protein accession
- gene: name
- intensity p-value: t-test for 2 samples or ANOVA test for more than 2 samples
- intensity q-value: BH correction value
- ratio p-value: p-value using multiple intensity ratios. For example, the ratio is calculated like this: Ratio 1 = peptide intensity from 1st replicate experiment from sample 2 / peptide intensity from 1st replicate experiment from sample 1. Ratio 2 = peptide intensity from 2nd replicate experiment from sample 2 / peptide intensity from 2nd replicate experiment from sample 1, and so on. One sample t-test is done using all these ratios.
One replicate intensity from sample2 divided by another replicate from sample 1 is one ratio, for example.
- ratio q-value: corresponding BH correction value
- norm ratio p-value: p-value using multiple normalized intensity ratios. One replicate-nomalized intensity from sample2 divided by another replicate normalized intensity from sample 1 is one ratio, for example.
- norm ratio q-value: corresponding BH correction value
- log intensity p-value: t-test p-value from log2 (intensity)
- log intensity q-value: corresponding BH correction value
- norm log intensity p-value: t-test p-value from log2 (norm intensity)
- norm log intensity q-value: corresponding BH correction value
- protein abundance: log10 (total peptide intensity sum/protein length). This value can be used as protein abundance in the sample. Please check the protein abundance distribution graph by clicking the above button.
