Direct infusion untargeted metabolomics, as mass-over-charge values and intensity of ions, allows for rapid insight into a sample’s metabolic activity. However, analysis is often complicated by the large array of detected m/z values and the difficulty to prioritize important m/z and simultaneously annotate their putative identities. To address this challenge, we developed MetaboShiny, a novel R/RShiny-based metabolomics package featuring data analysis, database- and formula-prediction-based annotation and visualization. To demonstrate this, we reproduce and further explore a MetaboLights metabolomics bioinformatics study on lung cancer patient urine samples. MetaboShiny enables rapid and rigorous analysis and interpretation of direct infusion untargeted metabolomics data. ### Competing Interest Statement Jeroen de Ridder is co-founder of Cyclomics BV.
