ready mz Quantitative Markup Language

Abbreviation: mzQuantML

General Information
The mzQuantML standard format is intended to store the systematic description of workflows quantifying molecules (principally peptides and proteins) by mass spectrometry. A large number of different software packages are available that produce output in a variety of different formats. It is intended that mzQuantML will provide a common format for the export of identification results from any software package.
