How to use pre-alignments by bowtie2

Hi, I read the paper ( using bowtie2 for ATAC-seq read alignment, and find the question about pre-alignments. Does anyone know how to use pre-alignments? I don't know how to use the output of pre-alignments by bowtie2 as an input file for alignments.

Following sentence is their protocol.

Bowtie2 was applied for pre-alignments to filter out reads that align to repetitive regions using “-k 1 -D 20 -R 3 -N 1 -L 20 -i S,1,0.50 -X 2000 –rg-id” parameters. For the remaining reads, Bowtie2 was used to map to GRCh38 with “–very-sensitive -X 2000–rg-id” options.

Thanks in advance

Unless bowtie2 allows piping directly (probably not) you may simply need to run round 1 of alignment. Followed by round2 of alignments with data you select from the first round.

Thanks, GenoMax. Do you know how to use the output of pre-alignments by bowtie2 as an input file for alignments like below? Or Should I use some package like SamToFastq and use this output for 2nd round bowtie2?

bowtie2 -k 1 -D 20 -R 3 -N 1 -L 20 -i S,1,0.50 -X 2000 --rg-id \
-x GRCm39 \
-1 pre_1.fq.gz \
-2 pre_2.fq.gz \
-S pre.sam

bowtie2 --very-sensitive -X 2000 --rg-id \
-x GRCm39 \
-1 pre.sam \
-S filtered.sam

Run exactly as shown above in two steps. Run first command to create pre.sam file, which is then used in the second command. So you will have to let command 1 complete before you start #2.

I got error at 2nd script. Could you suggest any idea?

  bowtie2 [options]* -x <bt2-idx> {-1 <m1> -2 <m2> | -U <r> | --interleaved <i> | -b <bam>} [-S <sam>]

  <bt2-idx>  Index filename prefix (minus trailing .X.bt2).
             NOTE: Bowtie 1 and Bowtie 2 indexes are not compatible.
  <m1>       Files with #1 mates, paired with files in <m2>.
             Could be gzip'ed (extension: .gz) or bzip2'ed (extension: .bz2).
  <m2>       Files with #2 mates, paired with files in <m1>.
             Could be gzip'ed (extension: .gz) or bzip2'ed (extension: .bz2).
  <r>        Files with unpaired reads.
             Could be gzip'ed (extension: .gz) or bzip2'ed (extension: .bz2).
  <i>        Files with interleaved paired-end FASTQ/FASTA reads
             Could be gzip'ed (extension: .gz) or bzip2'ed (extension: .bz2).
  <bam>      Files are unaligned BAM sorted by read name.
  <sam>      File for SAM output (default: stdout)

  <m1>, <m2>, <r> can be comma-separated lists (no whitespace) and can be
  specified many times.  E.g. '-U file1.fq,file2.fq -U file3.fq'.

                     Bowtie2 will, by default, attempt to align unpaired BAM reads.

    (Note: for --un, --al, --un-conc, or --al-conc, add '-gz' to the option name, e.g.
    --un-gz <path>, to gzip compress output, or add '-bz2' to bzip2 compress output.)

                     Suppress standard behavior of truncating readname at first whitespace
