Defines functions import_data

Documented in import_data

#' Transforms the column names from a data frame to the required format.
#' This functions transforms the column names from a data frame from another
#' format to a data frame with column names used by the OpenSWATH output and
#' required for these functions. During executing of the function the
#' corresponding columns for each column in the data need to be selected. For
#' columns that do not corresond to a certain column 'not applicable' needs to
#' be selected and the column names are not changed.
#' @note List of column names of the OpenSWATH data:
#' ProteinName: Unique identifier for protein or proteingroup that the peptide
#'   maps to. Proteotypic peptides should be indicated by 1/ in order to be
#'   recognized as such by the function filter_proteotypic_peptides.
#' FullPeptideName: Unique identifier for the peptide.
#' Charge: Charge of the peptide precursor ion quantified.
#' Sequence: Naked peptide sequence without modifications.
#' aggr_Fragment_Annotation: aggregated annotation for the different Fragments
#'   quantified for this peptide. In the OpenSWATH results the different
#'   annotation in OpenSWATH are concatenated by a semicolon.
#' aggr_Peak_Area: aggregated Intensity values for the different Fragments
#'   quantified for this peptide. In the OpenSWATH results the aggregated Peak
#'   Area intensities are concatenated by a semicolon.
#' transition_group_id: A unique identifier for each transition group used.
#' decoy: Indicating with 1 or 0 if this transition group is a decoy.
#' m_score: Column containing the score that is used to estimate FDR or
#'   filter. M-score values of identified peak groups are equivalent to a
#'   q-value and thus typically are smaller than 0.01, depending on the
#'   confidence of identification (the lower the m-score, the higher the
#'   confidence).
#' Column containing the score that is used to estimate FDR or filter.
#' RT: Column containing the retention time of the quantified peak.
#' filename: Column containing the filename or a unique identifier for each
#'   injection.
#' Intensity: column containing the intensity value for each quantified peptide.
#' Columns needed for FDR estimation and filtering functions: ProteinName,
#'   FullPeptideName, transition_group_id, decoy, m_score
#' Columns needed for conversion to transition-level format (needed for MSStats
#'   and mapDIA input): aggr_Fragment_Annotation, aggr_Peak_Are
#' @param data  A data frame containing the SWATH-MS data (one line per peptide
#'   precursor quantified) but with different column names.
#' @return Returns the data frame in the appropriate format.
