Buda Introduction

NOTE: BUDA Version 2.0, with MASSPIKE and Filter Diagonalization is in the works, but is not yet ready for final release. Please be patient.

NOTE: The current version of BUDA (compiled May 17, 2003)is still available for Download Program Program + source code

B. U. D. A.

Boston University Data Analysis (B.U.D.A.) is an “Open Source” Free software project to develop analysis software for Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometers.

It currently has 3 primary and useful abilities, though development continues.

1) “cut-and-paste” spectra from the display to graphics programs such as CorelDraw and PowerPoint. When this “Cut and paste” feature is used, the spectra are copied as windows metafiles (default), or bitmaps, or as raw x,y text. The options are selectable via a right-click on the display window.

2) quick access to FTMS data from the desktop. The data is read in from raw time domain data files (currently set up to read IonSpec FTMS data files) and FFT’ed for display. Data can also be displayed as time domain, frequency domain, or Mass-Intensity tables. Also, the pulse sequence can be displayed for checking parameters from the desktop.

3) The raw data is available for development of custom data analysis code.

To download the B.U.D.A. compiled program, go to Installation. Installation instructions are also available.

To download the B.U.D.A. source code, go to go to Source Code. It uses Microsoft Visual C++ compiler (I use Version 6.O).

Please email me any improvements to the source code so that I can permanently incorporate them into the official B.U.D.A version. Be sure to also include authorship information so that I can appropriately credit you for the improvements.
