This option is used in combination with the command BuildModel or DNAScan. It tells the algorithm how many times it should do the specified mutations. Normally it should be set to 1. However, sometimes it can be set to higher numbers (typically 5) to see if the algorithm has achieved convergence, or in other words if the solution offered is the optimal or a trapped solution.

numberOfRuns set the number of runs done in BuildModel or DNAScan integer 1
