eMZed: an open source framework in Python for rapid and interactive development of LC/MS data analysis workflows


Kiefer, P; Schmitt, U; Vorholt, J A (2013). eMZed: an open source framework in Python for rapid and interactive development of LC/MS data analysis workflows. Bioinformatics, 29(7):963-964.

Abstract

The Python-based, open-source eMZed framework was developed for mass spectrometry (MS) users to create tailored workflows for liquid chromatography (LC)/MS data analysis. The goal was to establish a unique framework with comprehensive basic functionalities that are easy to apply and allow for the extension and modification of the framework in a straightforward manner. eMZed supports the iterative development and prototyping of individual evaluation strategies by providing a computing environment and tools for inspecting and modifying underlying LC/MS data. The framework specifically addresses non-expert programmers, as it requires only basic knowledge of Python and relies largely on existing successful open-source software, e.g. OpenMS.
