Table 3 Detectable bacterial species and their relative proportion of reads in the samples

From: Next-generation sequencing for hypothesis-free genomic detection of invasive tropical infections in poly-microbially contaminated, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples – a proof-of-principle assessment

Species Mean percentage of reads in the sample (± 1 standard deviation) Mean percentage of bacterial reads in the sample (± 1 standard deviation)
Nocardia brasiliensis 0.021% ± 0.020% 0.097% ± 0.072%
Nocardia cyriacigeorgica 0.009% ± 0.009% 0.044% ± 0.029%
Nocardia farcinica 0.020% ± 0.019% 0.087% ± 0.066%
Streptomyces spp. 0.458% ± 0.428% 2.283% ± 1.494%
