Hydrogen deuterium exchange mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) is becoming increasing routine for monitoring changes in the structural dynamics of proteins. Differential HDX-MS allows comparison of protein states, such as in the absence or presence of a ligand. This can be used to attribute changes in conformation to binding events, allowing the mapping of entire conformational networks. As such, the number of necessary cross-state comparisons quickly increases as additional states are introduced to the system of study. There are currently very few software packages available that offer quick and informative comparison of HDX-MS datasets and even fewer which offer statistical analysis and advanced visualization. Following the feedback from our original software Deuteros, we present Deuteros 2.0 which has been redesigned from the ground up to fulfill a greater role in the HDX-MS analysis pipeline. Deuteros 2.0 features a repertoire of facilities for back exchange correction, data summarization, peptidelevel statistical analysis and advanced data plotting features.
