What to do if there are many unmatched reads after mapping (WGS alignment)? Tried elongation and error reducing condensation in NextGene software and no help. What can be done to improve ref and input sequence match, in other words?

You need to give a bit more information about the technology used for the sequencing, the organism you are working on and the software you are using with specifications of parameters.

Illumina, M tuberculosis, NextGene software, default parameters, 2 elongation default cycles

Take a sample of unmatched reads and blast at NCBI to make sure they are actually what you think they are. It is always safe to ensure that blast returns matches for the expected species.
