MSGFgui-package: MSGFgui: A graphic user interface for MSGFplus

Description Author(s) References See Also


This package provides a GUI overlay for the MSGFplus package, and by extension the MS-GF+ algorithm for peptide identification in LC-MS/MS data files. Most functionality of the app is hidden behind the function MSGFgui which summons the GUI in your browser of choice. Do note that MSGFgui relies on a modern browser that supports HTML5, CSS3 and SVG. This means that people trapped in Internet Explorer 8 and below will probably have trouble getting this to work - but then again they certainly have other things to worry about. Please consult the vignette for a run-through of the functionality exposed in the GUI.
