Many analytical pipelines exist for the automation of this analysis and some tools exist for the subsequent representation and inspection of the results of these pipelines. Mass Dynamics 1.0 (MD 1.0) is a web based analysis environment that can analyze and visualize LFQ data produced by software such as Maxquant. Unlike other tools, MD 1.0 utilizes cloud-based architecture to enable researchers to store their data, enabling researchers to not only automatically process and visualize their LFQ data but annotate and share their findings with collaborators and, if chosen, to easily publish results to the community. With a view toward increased reproducibility and standardisation in proteomics data analysis and streamlining collaboration between researchers, MD 1.0 requires minimal parameter choices and automatically generates quality control reports to verify experiment integrity. Here, we demonstrate that MD 1.0 provides reliable results for protein expression quantification, emulating Perseus on benchmark datasets over a wide dynamic range.
The MD 1.0 platform is available globally via: https://app.massdynamics.com/.
