Nicolau Cañellas, Reza M. Salek, Daniel Cañueto, Josep Gómez, Xavier Correig

Abstract

Introduction

Adoption of automatic profiling tools for 1H-NMR-based metabolomic studies still lags behind other approaches in the absence of the flexibility and interactivity necessary to adapt to the properties of study data sets of complex matrices.

Objectives

To provide an open source tool that fully integrates these needs and enables the reproducibility of the profiling process.

Methods

rDolphin incorporates novel techniques to optimize exploratory analysis, metabolite identification, and validation of profiling output quality.

Results

The information and quality achieved in two public datasets of complex matrices are maximized.

Conclusion

rDolphin is an open-source R package (http://github.com/danielcanueto/rDolphin) able to provide the best balance between accuracy, reproducibility and ease of use.
