An open-source python library for mass spectrometry-based proteomics data analysis
Maspy is a Python library with the aim to provide simple, convenient and versatile access to proteomics data of bottom up experiments. To achieve this it features an internal data representation that facilitates comfortable use of this data. Maspy is intended as a tool for researchers that allows the combination of different software to generate customized and scriptable data processing workflows and to enable interactive data analysis with Python.
An introduction to the underlying concepts of maspy is available at http://maspy.readthedocs.io
In order to show how to use maspy we are going to provide examples of simple data analysis workflows.
Test files can be downloaded from https://github.com/hollenstein/maspy_testfiles
For Windows users without Python we recommend installing the Anaconda Python package provided by Continuum Analytics.
NOTE: The current release of maspy will soon be submitted to PyPi, which allows installation with PIP, as described below:
For installing maspy and its dependencies we recommend using PIP.
