parser for netCDF, mzXML, mzData and mzML and mzIdentML files (mass spectrometry data)

Bioconductor version: Release (3.6)

mzR provides a unified API to the common file formats and parsers available for mass spectrometry data. It comes with a wrapper for the ISB random access parser for mass spectrometry mzXML, mzData and mzML files. The package contains the original code written by the ISB, and a subset of the proteowizard library for mzML and mzIdentML. The netCDF reading code has previously been used in XCMS.
