Panorama Public: A Public Repository for Quantitative Data Sets Processed in Skyline

Mol Cell Proteomics. 2018 Jun;17(6):1239-1244. doi: 10.1074/mcp.RA117.000543. Epub 2018 Feb 27.


To address the growing need for a centralized, community resource of published results processed with Skyline, and to provide reviewers and readers immediate visual access to the data behind published conclusions, we present Panorama Public (, a repository of Skyline documents supporting published results. Panorama Public is built on Panorama, an open source data management system for mass spectrometry data processed with the Skyline targeted mass spectrometry environment. The Panorama web application facilitates viewing, sharing, and disseminating results contained in Skyline documents via a web-browser. Skyline users can easily upload their documents to a Panorama server and allow other researchers to explore uploaded results in the Panorama web-interface through a variety of familiar summary graphs as well as annotated views of the chromatographic peaks processed with Skyline. This makes Panorama ideal for sharing targeted, quantitative results contained in Skyline documents with collaborators, reviewers, and the larger proteomics community. The Panorama Public repository employs the full data visualization capabilities of Panorama which facilitates sharing results with reviewers during manuscript review.
