The Metabolomics Standards Initiative (MSI)
Many downstream analysis use final results of an experiment which require an easily accessible format, therefore HUPO-PSI has developed the mzTab file format for MS-based proteomics and metabolomics results to meet such need. The mzTab file format is intended as a lightweight supplement to the existing standard XML-based file formats (e.g.

mzTab has been designed to act as a lightweight, tab-delimited file format for mass spec-derived
mzTab-M: exchange format for metabolomics results
The following cases of usage have driven the development of the mzTab data model, and are used to define the scope of the format in version 1.0.
