mmass(1) a free mass spectrometry tool for proteomics




mmass is a free mass spectrometry tool for proteomics. Its main feature is its capability to load mass spectral data in its powerful mass spectrum viewer. The program can load data in the following formats: mzData, mzXML, raw text. The mass spectrum viewer allows performing a large number of operations commonly required when analyzing mass spectrometry data (zoom, pan, rapid delta-mass calculations, peak picking and so forth). The program will allow defining peak lists, recalibrating spectra, performing some protein-only simulations and doing on-line Mascot searches.
