[BioC] Pointers on importing peptide (protein) expression data

I'm new to BioConductor and have given the faqs a read through as well
as some of the tutorials but need someone to point me in the right
direction because the data I have is a little unusual. I'll explain
what I have and then what I would like to do.
What I have.
The data I have looks like this
Protein_Name Peptide_Mass: T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 T7
T[1-7] is the expression ratio at time point [1-7] and is a ratio of
abundances of the sample to a reference.
What I would like to do.
This data seems similar to what you might get out of an array
experiment. I am wondering if I can load the data in a way that would
allow me to make use of the annotation package to attach GO information
and then use the applicable array analysis packages.
Is BioConductor a suitable tool for this?
What is the best way to load this data? (where should I be looking)
Can you recommend analysis packages to clustering by GO and to
cluster on patters in the protein expression data?
Thanks for looking at this, I really appreciate it.
