Heterozygous peaks in bacteria RNA sequencing
 
hello all,

When I try to sequence 16s bacterial RNA using ABI 3130 it gives me heterozygous peaks. Since the microbes only contain a haploid set of chromosomes I am puzzled how it could be possible to indicate two peaks?
can someone please explain

Because bacteria typically have multiple copies of the 16S rRNA gene?
