Proteomics data analysis strongly benefits from not studying single proteins in isolation but taking their multivariate interdependence into account. We introduce PerseusNet, the new Perseus network module for the biological analysis of proteomics data. Proteomics is commonly used to generate networks, e.g. with affinity purification experiments, but networks are also used to explore proteomics data. PerseusNet supports the biomedical researcher for both modes of data analysis with a multitude of activities. For affinity purification, a volcano plot-based statistical analysis method for network generation is featured which is scalable to large numbers of baits. For posttranslational modifications of proteins, such as phosphorylation, a collection of dedicated network analysis tools helps elucidating cellular signaling events. Co-expression network analysis of proteomics data adopts established tools from transcriptome co-expression analysis. PerseusNet is extensible through a plug-in architecture in a multi-lingual way, integrating analyses in C#, Python and R and is freely available at http://www.perseus-framework.org.
