I am having problems interpreting the output of the table summary after demultiplexing with DADA2.
The table summary says that there are a total of 7,000 features in the whole dataset and that there are 6 million reads processed, right?
Then the frequency per sample indicates the frequency of reads per sample? I don’t think it is the frequency of features per sample since the mean frequency (21,000) is larger than the total number of features.
And how can I interpret the frequency per feature statistics? How can I translate into words the mean frequency of features (881)? Does it mean that one feature is found in average 881 times throughout all the samples?
Thank you for your support.
