mzTab-M is intended as a reporting standard for quantitative results from metabolomics/lipodomics approaches. This format is further intended to provide local LIMS systems as well as MS metabolomics repositories a simple way to share and combine basic information. mzTab-M has been developed with a view to support the following general tasks. Facilitate the sharing of final experimental results, especially with researchers outside the field of metabolomics. Export of results to external software, including programs such as Microsoft Excel and Open Office Spreadsheet and statistical software / coding languages such as R. Act as an output format of (web-) services that report MS-based results and thus can produce standardized result pages. Be able to link to the external experimental evidence e.g. by referencing back to mzML files.

Required By


With an activated Bioconda channel (see 2. Set up channels), install with:

conda install jmztab-m

and update with:

conda update jmztab-m

or use the docker container:

docker pull<tag>

(see jmztab-m/tags for valid values for <tag>)


jmzTab-M is Java program that comes with a custom wrapper shell script. This shell wrapper is called "opsin" and is on $PATH by default. By default "-Xms512m -Xmx1g" is set in the wrapper. If you want to overwrite it you can specify these values directly after your binaries. If you have _JAVA_OPTIONS set globally this will take precedence. For example run it with "jmztab-m -Xms512m -Xmx1g"
