A software tool for the efficient and automatic analysis of GC/MS-based metabolomics data. Starting with raw MS data, MetaboliteDetector detects and subsequently identifies potential metabolites. Moreover, a comparative analysis of a large number of chromatograms can be performed in either a targeted or nontargeted approach. It automatically determines appropriate quantification ions and performs an integration of single ion peaks. The analysis results can directly be visualized with a principal component analysis. Since the manual input is limited to absolutely necessary parameters, the program is also usable for the analysis of high-throughput data. However, the intuitive graphical user interface of MetaboliteDetector additionally allows for a detailed examination of a single GC/MS chromatogram including single ion chromatograms, recorded mass spectra, and identified metabolite spectra in combination with the corresponding reference spectra obtained from a reference library. MetaboliteDetector is able to import GC/MS data in NetCDF and FastFlight format.


Includes widely used statistical methods to process and identify keys entities of input experiments, offers different integrative analysis methodologies and provides interactive visualization to facilitate biological interpretations. Metabox is a bioinformatics toolbox for deep phenotyping analytics that combines data processing, statistical analysis, functional analysis and integrative exploration of metabolomic data within proteomic and transcriptomic contexts. It supports in-depth analysis of metabolomic data by including four analysis modules: data normalization, statistical analysis, network construction and functional analysis.


An LC/MS-based data analysis approach which incorporates novel nonlinear retention time alignment, feature detection, and feature matching. The XCMS software reads and processes LC/MS data stored in netcdf , mzXML, mzData and mzML files. It provides methods for feature detection, non-linear retention time alignment, visualization, relative quantization and statistics. XCMS is capable of simultaneously preprocessing, analyzing, and visualizing the raw data from hundreds of samples. XCMS is freely available under an open-source license.


A next-generation web application addressing storage, sharing, standardization, integration and analysis of metabolomics experiments. New features improve both efficiency and effectivity of the entire processing pipeline of chromatographic raw data from pre-processing to the derivation of new biological knowledge. First, the generation of high-quality metabolic datasets has been vastly simplified. Second, the new statistics tool box allows to investigate these datasets according to a wide spectrum of scientific and explorative questions.


Comprises a library of functions for processing of instrument gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) data. PyMS currently provides a complete set of GC-MS processing functions, including reading of standard data formats (ANDI- MS/NetCDF and JCAMP-DX), noise smoothing, baseline correction, peak detection, peak deconvolution, peak integration, and peak alignment by dynamic programming. It implements parallel processing for by-row and by-column data processing tasks based on Message Passing Interface (MPI), allowing processing to scale on multiple CPUs in distributed computing environments.


A MathDAMP extension for the visualization of three-way comparisons between metabolite profiles. TriDAMP is based on the HSB (hue, saturation, brightness) color model. The three compared values are assigned specific hue values from the circular hue range (e.g. red, green, and blue). The hue value representing the three-way comparison is calculated according to the distribution of three compared values. If two of the values are identical and one is different, the resulting hue is set to the characteristic hue of the differing value. If all three compared values are different, the resulting hue is selected from a color gradient running between the hues of the two most distant values (as measured by the absolute value of their difference) according to the relative position of the third value between the two. The saturation of the color representing the three-way comparison reflects the amplitude (or extent) of the numerical difference between the two most distant values according to a scale of interest. The brightness is set to a maximum value by default but can be used to encode additional information about the three-way comparison.
