Package for Peak Picking and ANnoTation of High resolution Experiments in R, implemented in R and Shiny


peakPantheR is an R/Bioconductor package that implements functions to detect, integrate and report pre-defined features in MS files (e.g. compounds, fragments, adducts, …). It is designed for:

peakPantheR can process LC/MS data files in NetCDF, mzML/mzXML and mzData format as data import is achieved using Bioconductor’s mzR package.

The reference versions of peakPantheR is available on the corresponding Bioconductor page (release or dev version).

Active development and issue tracking take place on the github page, while an overview of the package, vignettes and documentation are available on the supporting website.
