Abstract: Mass spectrometers are tools in the field of proteomics. Each mass spectrometer manufacturer uses its individual data format and software tools, making the creation of additional software tools and databases difficult and incompatible with one another. The Mass Spectrum I/O Project (MSIOP) addresses this problem, allowing for storage and analysis of mass spectrometer data from multiple manufacturers across various platforms while providing a framework upon which mass spectrometry software tools can be constructed.
