Thanks GenoMax,

I see from other thread that masked genomes are used in order to prevent false positives when removing contamination.

At the same time in the thread you suggest simply use BBSplit, which should be enough.

I assume you have seen BBsplit, which can be used for this purpose.
With thanks,
