Cut-out of a result protocol of the ‘Basic analysis’. The first lines show general information concerning the analysis, followed by a read size distribution calculated before and after the ‘Basic analysis’ as well as calculated after the ‘Further analysis’. The lower part displays the number of reads assigned to the detected species grouped at the domain and family levels. The central columns individually represent the results for mapping, assembly, and BLAST showing the number of reads detected by the respective tool. Blast results are accompanied by the range of identities of the read with the best hit in the database.
