MSnbase is an R/Bioconductor package that provides infrastructure for plotting, manipulation and processing mass spectrometry and proteomics data. The project was started by Laurent Gatto in October 2010 (Mon Oct 4 23:35:23 2010, according to the git log) and has, since then, benefited from various contributions, in particular Sebastian Gibb and Johannes Rainer.
To get an overview of the package, see the MSnbase-demo vignette. More vignettes are available in the Articles tab.
