Performance of error-tolerant searches compared to non-error-tolerant matches in the same search. a Number of matched proteins. b Total number of Peptide Spectrum Matches (PSMs). c Number of observed mutable PSMs. d Retrieval of mutable positions in searches 2 and 3, regardless of the number of matching mutable PSMs. For a and b, open boxplots indicate a search equaling a non-error-tolerant search and a filled boxplot indicates an error-tolerant search. Values are normalized to the Homo database search per dataset. Note differences in y-axes. Statistical differences were determined by paired samples t-tests (* = p < 0.05, ** = p < 0.01, *** = p < 0.001)
