Comet parameter: minimum_intensity

  • A floating point number indicating the minimum intensity value for input the input peaks.
  • If an experimental MS/MS peak intensity is less than this value, it will not be read in and used in the analysis.
  • This is one mechanism to get rid of systemmatic background noise that has a near contant peak intensity.
  • If a peak does not pass this minimum intensity threshold, it will also not be counted towards the minimum_peaks parameter.
  • Valid values are any floating point number.
  • The default value is "0.0" if this parameter is missing.

minimum_intensity = 100.0
