Provides a standard output format for mass spectrometry (MS) data that will facilitate data sharing and analysis. MzML is focused on four keys objectives: (i) creation of a simple format, (ii) elimination of alternate ways to encode the same information, (iii) support for all the features of both mzXML and mzData, and (iv) validation through implementation prior to release. Then, this tool is a format that can accommodate incremental advances in MS technology, while providing a good foundation for extension to accommodate encoding of data from new technologies.
