Dendral performs structure elucidation in organic chemistry based on data from a mass spectrometer (which bombards chemical samples with electrons, breaking atomic bonds). Fragments are collected by charge/mass, and relative abundance is plotted as a histogram. The goal is to uniquely identify the chemical structure.
