Summary: Data visualization plays critical roles in proteomics studies, ranging from quality control of MS/MS data to validation of peptide identification results. Herein, we present PDV, an integrative proteomics data viewer that can be used to visualize a wide range of proteomics data, including database search results, de novo sequencing results, proteogenomics files, MS/MS data in mzML/mzXML format and data from public proteomics repositories. PDV is a lightweight visualization tool that enables intuitive and fast exploration of diverse, large-scale proteomics datasets on standard desktop computers in both graphical user interface and command line modes.
Availability and implementation: PDV software and the user manual are freely available at http://pdv.zhang-lab.org. The source code is available at https://github.com/wenbostar/PDV and is released under the GPL-3 license.
Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
