Extracting reference reads

I have a sample with read length of 250 bases. and while extracting reference reads, I chose min and the maximum length of 400 and 490 respectively. how this going to affect my downstream taxonomic and differential abundance analysis?


Hi @Nisha,

Can you provide more details? What marker gene / variable region are you using? Are you using SILVA, GTDB, GreenGenes?

If your sequences are ~250 bp, then your minimum length should be below 250, not 400.
