Mass spectrometry-based proteomics is a high-throughput technology generating ever-larger amounts of data per project. However, storing, processing, and interpreting these data can be a challenge. A key element in simplifying this process is the development of interactive frameworks focusing on visualization that can greatly simplify both the interpretation of data and the generation of new knowledge. Here we present PeptideShaker Online, a user-friendly web-based framework for the identification of mass spectrometry-based proteomics data, from raw file conversion to interactive visualization of the resulting data. Storage and processing of the data are performed via the versatile Galaxy platform (through SearchGUI, PeptideShaker, and moFF), while the interaction with the results happens via a locally installed web server, thus enabling researchers to process and interpret their own data without requiring advanced bioinformatics skills or direct access to compute-intensive infrastructures. The source code, additional documentation, and a fully functional demo is available at https://github.com/barsnes-group/peptide-shaker-online.
