Methods that predict the monoisotopic mass based on the average mass are potentially affected by imprecisions associated with the average mass. To address this issue, we have developed a framework based on simple, linear models that allows prediction of the monoisotopic mass based on the exact mass of the most-abundant (aggregated) isotope peak, which is a robust measure of mass, insensitive to the aforementioned natural and technical causes

BRAIN = Baffling Recursive Algorithm for Isotope distributioN calculations. This package calculates aggregated isotopic distribution and exact center-masses for chemical substances (in this version composed of C, H, N, O and S). This is an implementation of the BRAIN algorithm described in the paper by J. Claesen, P. Dittwald, T. Burzykowski and D. Valkenborg.
