The Perseus software platform supports biological and biomedical researchers in interpreting protein quantification, interaction and post-translational modification data. Perseus contains a comprehensive portfolio of statistical tools for high-dimensional omics data analysis covering normalization, pattern recognition, time-series analysis, cross-omics comparisons and multiple-hypothesis testing. A machine learning module supports the classification and validation of patient groups for diagnosis and prognosis, and it also detects predictive protein signatures. Central to Perseus is a user-friendly, interactive workflow environment that provides complete documentation of computational methods used in a publication.


  • Hands-on tutorials and theoretical lectures are available on the MaxQuant youtube channel.
  • Participate in our annual MaxQuant summer school to gain even deeper insights into MaxQuant and Perseus.
  • Read the protocol-style book chapter on Perseus.
  • Join the discussion around Perseus and data analysis on the Perseus mailing list – a great place to ask any question and get answers from the community.


Perseus is freely available to commercial and academic users, just follow the download and installation guide.
