The ppx Package¶
A Python interface to the ProteomeXchange Repository¶
ppx package provides a simple means to access the ProteomeXchange
 repository from Python. Using ProteomeXchange identifiers, the user can
retrieve metadata associated with a project and download project files from
the PRIDE Archive  .
ppx is based on the
rpx R package by Laurent Gatto
. Our intent is that
ppx would provide an efficient method to reuse
proteomics data from ProteomeXchange, allowing easier access for those
developing proteomics tools and analyses in Python.
ppx was developed and tested for Python 3.5+, and only requires
packages that are distributed as part of the Python Standard Library. The
release version of
ppx can be installed with
pip install ppx
ppx is distributed under the MIT license.
