Abstract / Description of output

Crosslinking mass spectrometry (Crosslinking MS) has substantially matured as a method over the last two decades through parallel development in multiple labs, demonstrating its applicability for protein structure determination, conformation analysis and mapping protein interactions in complex mixtures. Crosslinking MS has become a much-appreciated and routinely applied tool, especially in structural biology. Therefore, it is timely that the community commits to the development of methodological and reporting standards. This white paper builds on an open process comprising a number of events at community conferences since 2015 and identifies aspects of Crosslinking MS for which guidelines should be developed as part of a Crosslinking MS standards initiative.
