Interfaces the tandem protein identification algorithm in R

Bioconductor version: Release (2.14)

This package interfaces the tandem protein identification algorithm in R. Identification can be launched in the X!Tandem style, by using as sole parameter the path to a parameter file. But rTANDEM aslo provides extended syntax and functions to streamline launching analyses, as well as function to convert results, parameters and taxonomy to/from R. A related package, shinyTANDEM, provides visualization interface for result objects.
