From the developer:
Mascot is a powerful search engine which uses mass spectrometry data to identify proteins from primary sequence databases.
While a number of similar programs available, Mascot is unique in that it integrates all of the proven methods of searching.
The general approach for all types of search is to take a small sample of the protein of interest and digest it with a proteolytic enzyme.
