Unknown reads source in indexed sequencing:

1- PhiX
2- indices that does not match those in sample sheet caused by base mis-match in excess of set numbers in bcl2 fastq. This is result of poor sequence quality due to over clustering or adapter/primer quality

Unknown reads are high when using desalted primers for amplicon libraries
