Algorithms applied to mass spectra of Salmonella isolates were used to achieve accurate and rapid serotyping. Two classification strategies were developed, one using all ions and the other, only 19. Without feature selection, classification based on all ions (m/z 70–700) could distinguish similar strains, but samples so classified did not form serotype similarity super-clusters: i.e., different strains...
