Mapping table

When several reference sequence are used or you are performing de novo assembly with the reads mapped back to the contig sequences, all your mapping data will be accessible from a table (Image multicontig). It means that all the individual mappings are treated as one single file to be saved in the Navigation Area as a table.

An example of a mapping table for a de novo assembly is shown in figure 25.17.

The information included in the table is:

For read mapping, there is more information taken from the reference sequence used as input. An example of a contig table produced by mapping reads to a reference is shown in figure 25.18.

Besides the information that is also in the de novo table, there is information about name, common name and Latin name of each reference sequence.

At the bottom of the table, there are two buttons which apply to the rows that you select (press Ctrl + A - Image command_key_web +A on Mac - to select all):

You can copy the textual information from the table by selecting in the table and click Copy (Image copy). This can then be pasted into e.g. Excel. You can also export the table in Excel format.
