Park SK, Venable JD, Xu T, Yates JR 3rd. Nat Methods. 2008 Apr;5(4):319-22. We describe Census, a quantitative software tool compatible with many labeling strategies as well as with label-free analyses, single-stage mass spectrometry (MS1) and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) scans, and high- and low-resolution mass spectrometry data. Census uses robust algorithms to address poor-quality measurements and improve quantitative efficiency, and it can support several input file formats. We tested Census with stable-isotope labeling analyses as well as label-free analyses.
