Table 2 Read count comparison between single and paired end files

From: SAMSA: a comprehensive metatranscriptome analysis pipeline

  4012 SR 4012 PE 4015 SR 4015 PE
Forward reads 38,763,820 - 22,613,426 -
Reverse reads 38,763,820 - 22,613,426 -
Paired assembled reads - 19,269,224 - 7,245,834
Total annotations 11,840,915 21,683,084 1,928,992 3,041,963
Unique annotations 8,658,502 13,310,506 1,280,940 1,875,267
  1. Two pilot paired-end metatranscriptomes were analyzed both in paired configuration, and using only the forward reads (to simulate a single-end metatranscriptome from the same data). Despite higher numbers of total reads, the single-end data matched to fewer total and unique annotations in both cases
