I have been generating consensus sequences from a Bowtie2-aligned BAM file using the following script:

samtools mpileup -d 100000 -Q 0 -q 0 -f Reference.fasta input.bam

in the pileup file, the consensus sequence has a gap where I can clearly see reads that map to the reference,

in the pileup file,there is a gap between 42449 and 42469

in the sam file,there exists alignments：（part of them):
