Open-source frameworks and libraries play an important role in the development and growth of the new MS-based proteomics tools. As a matter of fact, they can greatly simplify the implementation of the basic features needed in most tools and allow the developers to focus on the novel aspects, rather than on the basic functions, which can contribute substantially to achieve a faster development. Basic and complex functionalities are both supported, such as protein sequence digestion, sequence feature predictions, file format readers and converters, spectrum preprocessing and peptide/protein post-processing, among others.
