Thermo MSF Parser
Thermo ProteomeDiscoverer integrates both the peptide identification and quantification steps in peptide centric proteomics into a single workflow. This makes it one of the preferred programs to analyze proteomics data from Thermo mass spectrometers. The results of the ProteomeDiscoverer workflow are stored in MSF files. Here, we present a Java library to parse and visualize these MSF files.
Supported MSF Versions: Note that we only support MSF files from ProteomeDiscoverer version 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4. We are not planning to invest development time in supporting older versions, but will however, try to ensure forward compatibility as new versions of ProteomeDiscoverer become available.

See the wiki for additional information on how to use Thermo MSF Parser.
The Thermo MSF viewer makes use of compomics-utilities and JSparklines to visualize every bit of information found in the msf files.
Similar parsers for OMSSA and X!Tandem results files are also available, see OMSSA Parser and XTandem Parser.
