mzmine website  
MZmine 2 is an open-source framework for processing, visualization and analysis of mass spectrometry based molecular profile data. It is based on the original MZmine toolbox described in 2006 Bioinformatics publication.

Required Modules


  • mzmine

System Variables

  • HPC_{{#uppercase:mzmine}}_DIR - installation directory

Additional Information

mzMine can be run in a batch mode according to mzMine Manual by calling startMZmine with a single argument corresponding to a saved batch script generated within the GUI.

We provide an alternate startMZmine script that correctly sets the HEAP memory based on either the HPC_MZMINE_MEM environment variable or, if that variable if absent, based on the total amount of requested memory within a job. Pleas see the sample script below. Note that it appears to be necessary to simulate a virtual X11 environment for mzMine to run in batch mode.

PBS Script Examples

See the MZMine_PBS page for mzmine PBS script examples.
