The identification Compare tool is used to compare search results in a peptide or protein level. This tool does not calculate any statistical values (e.g. p- or q- values). This is a legacy tool, and we recommend users to try the Identification Stat Compare tool described in the next chapter. Both Identification Compare and Stat Compare use spectral count. For XIC peak area-based label-free analysis, please use the label-free tool described in a separate chapter
To start such a comparison, you can click the “Project” tab to view all existing projects within a set of experiments.

Once the comparison is completed, the page will redirect to the list of existing comparisons. The table of comparisons is sorted by date, so it is easy to locate the newly created comparison.
