Chimeric sequences with same Right and Left Parents

Hi there,
After running chimera.slayer, I looked at the .slayer.chimera output and found that some of the chimeric sequences have the same Right and Left Parents. I am unsure if it is normal and how I should interpret this.
I am using version 1.17.3 of mothur.
Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi Caroline,

Hmm… Could you email us the offending sequence? Also, you might update to 1.18.x and see if you still have that bug. We’ve been doing a lot with chimera.slayer lately and we may have fixed that bug along the way. Regardless, I’d like to see that sequence and how you’re running chimera.slayer.
