This article is part of our series A day in the software life, in which researchers from all disciplines discuss the tools that make their research possible.

High-throughput mass spectrometry has become a versatile technique to tackle a large range of questions in the life sciences. Being able to quantify diverse classes of biomolecules opens the way for improved disease diagnostics, elucidation of molecular structure and investigation of cellular pathways. In an interplay with other open-source software, OpenMS enables powerful workflows to transform biological data into meaningful knowledge.

In recent years, mass spectrometry has gained significant attention in the life sciences. The mass spectrometer determines the…
