- pymzML is an extension to Python that offers
- easy access to mass spectrometry (MS) data that allows the rapid development of tools
- a very fast parser for mzML data, the standard mass spectrometry data format
- a set of functions to compare and/or handle spectra
- random access in compressed files
- interactive data visualization
pymzML requires Python3.4+. The module is freely available on pymzml.github.com or pypi, published under GPL and requires no additional modules to be installed, but can optionally use numpy.
- Get the latest version via github

pymzML requires Python 3.4 or higher.
Consider to use a Python virtual environment for easy installation and use. Further, usage of python3.4+ is recommended.
Download pymzML using GitHub or the zip file:
GitHub version: Start by cloning the GitHub repository:
user@localhost:~$ git clone https://github.com/pymzML/pymzml.git user@localhost:~$ cd pymzml user@localhost:~$ pip install -r requirements.txt user@localhost:~$ python setup.py install
If you have troubles installing the dependencies, install numpy first separately, since pynumpress requires numpy to be installed.
If you use Windows 7 please use the ‘SDK7.1 command prompt’ for installation of pymzML to assure correct compiling of the C extensions.
