       topp - library for LC/MS data management and analysis - tools


       This  manual  page documents briefly the topp package that brings a set of binary tools to
       build the OpenMS proteomics pipeline (topp).  OpenMS  offers  an  infrastructure  for  the
       development  of  mass  spectrometry-related  software and powerful 2D and 3D visualization
       solutions. OpenMS offers analyses for various quantitation protocols, including label-free
       quantitation,  SILAC,  iTRAQ,  SRM,  SWATH…  It  provides  build-in algorithms for de-novo
       identification and database search, as well as adapters to other  state-of-the  art  tools
       like  X!Tandem,  Mascot,  OMSSA…  OpenMS supports the Proteomics Standard Initiative (PSI)
       formats for MS data and supports easy integration of  tools  into  workflow  engines  like
       Knime,  Galaxy,  WS-Pgrade,  and  TOPPAS via the TOPPtools concept and a unified parameter
