       python-pymzml - mzML mass spectrometric data parsing


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  the python-pymzml package that packages the pymzML
       Python extension.

       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 in mass spectrometry data format;

       - a set of functions to compare or handle spectra.

       pymzML requires Python2.6.5+ and is fully compatible with Python3. The  module  is  freely
       available  on  or pypi, published under LGPL and requires no additional
       modules to be installed.

       The documentation of this Python extension is packaged in the python-pymzml-doc package.


       A number of useful examples are shipped within the python-pymzml package and can be  found
       at  /usr/share/doc/python-pymzml/example_scripts.  A  number  of  the examples make use of
       functions contained in via an import of that file's  contents.  It  is
       suggested  to  copy this directory to a temporary place and to run python from inside that
       new directory so as to gain access to the features contained in  that
       file through an import (which would not work otherwise).
