Packages

RforMassSpectrometry

RforMassSpectrometry is a meta-package that is used to manage the R for Mass Spectrometry suite and core package versions in a coherent way. Users will rely on this package to install and manage the other packages. Learn more ...

MsExperiment

The MsExperiment package provides the infrastructure to store and manage all aspects related to a complete proteomics or metabolomics mass spectrometry experiment. It relies on the other RforMassSpectrometry core packages for the data crunching. Learn more ...

Spectra

The Spectra package provides base classes and processing methods for raw mass spectrometry data. It is designed with efficiency, both in terms of memory footprint and processing time in mind, and can manage data in different types of formats. Learn more ...

QFeatures

The QFeatures package offers the infrastructure to manage and process quantitative features for high-throughput mass spectrometry assays, including proteomics and metabolomics experiments. Learn more ...

PSMatch

The PSMatch package allows to read, process and analyse peptide-spectrum matches. Learn more ...

Chromatograms

The Chromatograms package provides base classes and processing methods for chromatographic data. It is designed with efficiency, both in terms of memory footprint and processing time in mind, and can manage data in different types of formats. Learn more ...

MsCoreUtils

The MsCoreUtils package defines low-level functions for mass spectrometry data processing and is independent of any high-level data structures. Learn more ...

MetaboCoreUtils

The MetaboCoreUtils package defines low-level functions for common operations in metabolomics and is independent of any high-level data structures. Learn more ...

Get started

Each package comes with ample documentation, directly available on-line on the respective package webpages. All vignettes are also available here. The R for Mass Spectrometry tutorial is also a good way to learn how to use some of the most important packages of the project.
