Comet parameter: minimum_peaks

  • An integer value indicating the minimum number of m/z-intensity pairs that must be present in a spectrum before it is searched.
  • This parameter can be used to avoid searching nearly sparse spectra that will not likely yield an indentification.
  • This parameter is checked against the spectrum after clear_mz_range is applied but before any other spectral processing occurs (i.e. remove_precursor_peak).
  • Valid values are any integer number.
  • The default value is "10" if this parameter is missing.

minimum_peaks = 10
