This function removes entries mapping to proteins that are identified by less than n_peptides.
Removing single-hit proteins from an analysis can significantly increase the sensitivity under strict protein fdr criteria, as evaluated by e.g. assess_fdr_overall.
Data table that is produced by the openSWATH/iPortal workflow.
Number of minimal number of peptide IDs associated with a protein ID in order to be kept in the dataset.
Returns the filtered data frame with only peptides that map to proteins with >= n_peptides peptides.
