The unpaired reads can be left alone for now, but in the future you may go back to them to reduce the number of them and so forth by playing around with the trimmomatic settings.

I hope this helps and all the best with your project.

Thank you so much for your response! After I merge should I concatenate the unpaired files to the merged files? I'm running a BLAST to referenced bacterial genomes.
Another question, for removal of adapter sequences did I need the reverse complement sequences of the nextrra adapter sequences that were provided?
Thank you!
