You can see that color of the residues and trace at the end of one of the reads has been faded. This indicates, that this region has not contributed to the mapping. This may be due to trimming before or during the assembly or due to misalignment to the other reads.
You can easily adjust the trimmed area to include more of the read in the mapping: simply drag the edge of the faded area as shown in figure 31.13.
Note! This is only possible when you can see the residues on the reads. This means that you need to have zoomed in to 100% or more and chosen Compactness levels "Not compact", "Low" or "Packed". Otherwise the handles for dragging are not available (this is done in order to make the visual overview more simple).
If reads have been reversed, this is indicated by red. Otherwise, the residues are colored green. The colors can be changed in the Side Panel as described in View settings in the Side Panel
