Description Details Author(s) References


The mzR package is a library purely for accessing mass spectrometry data in a wide range of formats. Several backend libraries are used, such as the ISB random acces parser (RAMP) for mass spectrometry mzXML, mzData and mzML files. The package contains the original RAMP code written by the ISB, and a subset of the proteowizard library for mzML.
