Hey all, I am using bbmap to align metagenomics reads to the silve reference database (containing 510,000 16S sequences each with unique fasta header). I didn't fully understand the report that bbmap output and I will love to get some explanations on each parameter here, or a link.
The thing that confuses me is that in the mapped read files (both read1 and read2) I get 289947 reads and it does not add up or work with what's written in the report.
This is the report:
Thanks a lot for your help
