Star Wars There's a Dissertation for That! The latest in our ongoing blog series dives into the considerable body of scholarship around the galactic cultural phenomenon in from a galaxy far, far away. In this dissertation, I propose methods of preprocessing the spectral data to overcome the difficulties for the purpose of extracting valuable information contained in mass spectrometry data. In this talk, we propose a fivestep preprocessing algorithm developed for mass spectrometry MI data.
