Abstract

mzTab 2.0 for metabolomics (mzTab-M) is the most recent standard format developed in collaboration by the Proteomics and Metabolomics Standards Initiatives including contributions by the recently founded Lipidomics Standards Initiative. mzTab-M is a redesign of the original mzTab format which was geared towards reporting of proteomics results, and as such provided only limited support for metabolites. As a tab-delimited, spread-sheet like format, mzTab-M captures experimental metadata, summary information on small molecules across assays, MS features as a basis for quantitation, and evidence to support reporting of individual or feature group identifications. Here, we present the Java reference implementation for reading, writing and validating mzTab-M files. Furthermore, we provide a web-application for conveniently validating mzTab-M files by a graphical user interface, and a command line validator that accompanies the library. The jmzTab-M library, version 1.0.41 is available at https://github.com/lifs-tools/jmzTab-m and from Maven Central at https://search.maven.org/search?q=jmztabm under the terms of the open source Apache License 2.0. The web-application, as well as the Python and R implementations are available at https://github.com/lifs-tools. The respective websites link to additional API documentation, as well as to usage examples.
