The Taxonomic Profiling report is divided in three sections (figure 6.13), with an additional fourth section if the option "Auto-detect Paired Distances" was selected.
- Taxonomic Summary includes information about which taxonomic levels were found in the data sample and how many different taxa were found on each level.
- Classification of reads summarizes the number of reads in the sample and the number of uniquely mapping reads that match either the reference database, the host genome or were unclassified.
- Reference database Summary gives an overview of the reference database used with the Taxonomic Profiler. A subsection is added in case any duplicates are found in the database. In case of duplicates, only one of the duplicated references is used.
- Auto-detect Paired Distances gives the paired distance range.
