ProHits - An Open Source LIMS for MS-Based Interaction Proteomics

ProHits is a complete Open Source software solution for Mass Spectrometry (MS) based interaction proteomics that manages the entire analysis pipeline from raw MS data files to fully annotated protein-protein interaction datasets. ProHits is designed to provide an intuitive user interface from the biologist’s perspective and can accommodate multiple instruments within a facility, multiple user groups, multiple laboratory locations, and any number of parallel MS projects. ProHits can manage all project scales and supports common experimental pipelines including those using gel-based separation, gel-free analysis, and multidimensional protein or peptide separation. Experimental data in ProHits can be compared to curated interactions in BioGRID and visualized using Cytoscape.

The entire ProHits platform is Open Source and can be downloaded immediately from For more information on ProHits features, please see: “ProHits: integrated software for mass spectrometry-based interaction proteomics“.
