XFDR

Calculates false discovery rate estimates on crosslink identifications.

This tool calculates and FDR estimate for crosslink identifications, which are produced by OpenPepXL. The method employed currently is identical to the target-decoy approach used by xProphet (Walzthoeni et al., 2012). Consequently, this tool can also consume xquest.xml files (produced either by OpenPepXL or xQuest). The tool supports output in the idXML and mzIdentML formats.

Usage:
  XFDR <options>

Options (mandatory options marked with '*'):
  -in <file>                       Crosslink Identifications in either xquest.xml, idXML, or mzIdentML format
                                   (as produced by OpenPepXL) (valid formats: 'xml', 'idXML', 'mzid', 'xques
                                   t.xml')
  -in_type <in_type>               Type of input file provided with -in. If omitted, the file type is guessed
                                   from the file extension. (valid: 'xml', 'idXML', 'mzid', 'xquest.xml')
  -out_idXML <idXML_file>          Output as idXML file (valid formats: 'idXML')
  -out_mzIdentML <mzIdentML_file>  Output as mzIdentML file (valid formats: 'mzid')
  -out_xquest <xQuestXML_file>     Output as xquest.xml file (valid formats: 'xquest.xml')
  -decoy_string <text>             Prefix of decoy protein ids. The correspondig target protein id should be 
                                   retrievable by deleting this prefix. (default: 'DECOY_')
  -minborder <value>               Filter for minimum precursor mass error (ppm) before FDR estimation. Value
                                   s outside of the tolerance window of the original search will effectively
                                   disable this filter. (default: '-50.0')
  -maxborder <value>               Filter for maximum precursor mass error (ppm) before FDR estimation. Value
                                   s outside of the tolerance window of the original search will effectively
                                   disable this filter. (default: '50.0')
  -mindeltas <value>               Filter for delta score, 0 disables the filter. Minimum delta score require
                                   d, hits are rejected if larger or equal. The delta score is a ratio of
                                   the score of a hit and the score of the next best hit to the same spectrum
                                   , so the value range is between 0 and 1 with 1.0 meaning the scores are
                                   equal and 0.5 meaning the next best score is half as high as the current
                                   one. (default: '0.0' min: '0.0' max: '1.0')
  -minionsmatched <number>         Filter for minimum matched ions per peptide. (default: '0' min: '0')
  -uniquexl                        Calculate statistics based only on unique IDs. For a set of IDs from equal
                                   candidates (same pair of peptides, modifications and cross-linked positio
                                   ns), only the highest scoring hit will be considered. By default the score
                                   distribution will be estimated using all 1st ranked candidates.
  -no_qvalues                      Do not transform simple FDR to q-values
  -minscore <value>                Minimum score to be considered for FDR calculation. A number lower than 
                                   the lowest score will effectively disable this filter. (default: '-10.0')
  -binsize <value>                 Bin size for the cumulative histograms for score distributions. Should be 
                                   about the same size as the smallest expected difference between scores.
                                   Smaller numbers will make XFDR more robust, but much slower. Negative numb
                                   ers are not allowed. Should only be changed if the range of the main score
                                   changes or another score than the OpenPepXL score is used. (default: '1.0
                                   e-04' min: '1.0e-15')
                                   
Common TOPP options:
  -ini <file>                      Use the given TOPP INI file
  -threads <n>                     Sets the number of threads allowed to be used by the TOPP tool (default: 
                                   '1')
  -write_ini <file>                Writes the default configuration file
