MathIOmica-MSViewer: a dynamic viewer for mass spectrometry files for Mathematica

J Mass Spectrom. 2017 May;52(5):315-318. doi: 10.1002/jms.3928.


MathIOmica-MSViewer is an add-on graphical user interface utility for the Mathematica software system which facilitates the visualization and exploration of spectra from open format mass spectrometry files (mzXML and mzML standard community formats). The viewer was designed for simplicity and handling of large mass spectrometry data files. To facilitate searches, users may use search filters for the spectra based on mass to charge ratios and retention times, and visualize precursor spectra associated to a parent spectrum.
