Comet parameter: num_results

  • This parameter controls the number of peptide search results that are stored internally.
  • Depending on what post-processing tools are used, one may want to set this to the same value as num_output_lines.
  • When this parameter is set to a value greater than num_output_lines, it allows the SpRank value to span a larger range which may be helpful for tools like PeptideProphet or Percolator (not likely though).
  • Valid values are any integer between 1 and 100.
  • The default value is "100" if this parameter is missing.

num_results = 50
