Extending mzR

by Qiang Kou for R Project for Statistical Computing

The mzR R/Bioconductor package provides a unified application programming interface to the common open and community-driven file formats and parsers available for mass spectrometry data, namely mzXML, mzML and mzData. Currently, mzR provides two back-ends to read mass spectrometry raw data: netCDF and RAMP. The goal is to extend current useful, yet limited capabilities of mzR by adding support for the state-of-the-art proteowizard project.
