ReviewDecember 1, 2023
This review article presents the development and application of mass spectrometry (MS) approaches, developed in the author’s laboratory over the past 25 years, to detect; characterise, type and subtype; and distinguish major variants and subvariants of respiratory viruses such as influenza and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

Effect of Phosphorylation on the Collision Cross Sections of Peptide Ions in Ion Mobility Spectrometry
Kosuke Ogata, Chih-Hsiang Chang, Yasushi Ishihama
The insertion of ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) between LC and MS can improve peptide identification in both proteomics and phosphoproteomics by providing structural information that is complementary to LC and MS, because IMS
