Comet parameter: max_variable_mods_in_peptide

  • Specifies the total/maximum number of residues that can be modified in a peptide.
  • As opposed to specifying the maximum number of variable modifications for each of the 6 possible variable modifications, this entry limits the global number of variable mods possible in each peptide.
  • The default value is "5" if this parameter is missing.

max_variable_mods_in_peptide = 6
max_variable_mods_in_peptide = 10
