We have developed Mass++, a plug-in style visualization and analysis tool for mass spectrometry. Its plug-in style enables users to customize it and to develop original functions. Mass++ has several kinds of plug-ins, including rich viewers and analysis methods for proteomics and metabolomics. Plug-ins for supporting vendors' raw data are currently available; hence, Mass++ can read several data formats. Mass++ is both a desktop tool and a software development platform. Original functions can be developed without editing the Mass++ source code. Here, we present this tool's capability to rapidly analyze MS data and develop functions by providing examples of label-free quantitation and implementing plug-ins or scripts. Mass++ is freely available at .
