MaxQuant is a tool for proteomics quantification. In the settings under
Global parameters / Folder locations are three folder locations that are possible to be changed. Thought the manual does not even mention these options. Is there any benefit in changing these locations? Or can it be bad to do that? For example, if I run multiple MaxQuant instances at the same time doing different searches?
What is the meaning of the
Fixed andromeda index folder,
Temporary folder and
Combined folder location in MaxQuant? What is it used for and when would you (not) change it?
