This package is for version 3.16 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see QFeatures.

Quantitative features for mass spectrometry data

Bioconductor version: 3.16

The QFeatures infrastructure enables the management and processing of quantitative features for high-throughput mass spectrometry assays. It provides a familiar Bioconductor user experience to manages quantitative data across different assay levels (such as peptide spectrum matches, peptides and proteins) in a coherent and tractable format.
