Title
jqcML : an open-source Java API for mass spectrometry quality control data in the qcML format
Author
Abstract
The awareness that systematic quality control is an essential factor to enable the growth of proteomics into a mature analytical discipline has increased over the past few years. To this aim a controlled vocabulary and document structure have recently been proposed by Walzer et al. to store and disseminate quality control metrics for mass spectrometry-based proteomics experiments, called qcML. To facilitate the adoption of this standardized quality control routine, we introduce jqcML, a Java application programming interface (API) for the qcML data format. Firstly, jqcML provides a complete object model to represent qcML data. Secondly, jqcML provides the ability to read, write and work in a uniform manner with qcML data from different sources, including the XML-based qcML file format and the relational database qcDB. Interaction with the XML-based file format is obtained through the Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB), while generic database functionality is obtained by the Java Persistence API (JPA). jqcML is released as open-source software under the permissive Apache 2.0 license and can be downloaded from https://bitbucket.org/proteinspector/jqcml.
