output, sequence path


The value of this parameter is a string containing the full or relative path to a valid output file.


  1. This parameter was introduced in version 2006.04.01
  2. If this parameter is absent or does not represent a valid file path, no file is generated.
  3. No error condition is displayed if a file cannot be created.


Just prior to executing the refinement steps of a search, a list of protein sequences to use for the refinement is created. When this parameter is a valid file path, that list of proteins is written to that file, using the same format at X! Tandem's normal results output. This output file can be generated, even if refinement is not used for a search. The sequences output in this file can be imported into a subsequent search run using the refine, sequence path parameter.
