Comet parameter: decoy_prefix

  • This parameter specifies the prefix string that is pre-pended to the protein identifier and reported for decoy hits.
  • This parameter is only valid when a decoy_search is performed.
  • For example, if the prefix parameter is set to "decoy_prefix = reverse_", a match to a decoy peptide from protein "ALBU_HUMAN" would return "reverse_ALBU_HUMAN" as the protein identifier.
  • The default value is "DECOY_" if this parameter is missing.
