MetaboAnalyst for proteomics data


Can I use MetaboAnalyst for multivariate analysis of proteomics data since I have multiple characteristics in my samples? I like MetaboAnalyst and I actually don’t know other tools (yet).


Proteomics is interesting because the raw data and initial processing steps are more similar to metabolomics, but the downstream analysis relies on the same annotations and functional libraries as transcriptomics.

We developed ExpressAnalyst for transcriptomics analysis, but support common proteomics ID types as well:

The proteomics pipeline in ExpressAnalyst has only basic processing/normalization functionality. You can use these, or you can perform the initial processing/normalization in MetaboAnalyst, then upload the processed matrix to ExpressAnalyst for statistical and functional analysis.
