How is PhiX alignment calculated by RTA (Real Time Analysis)?

The Real Time Analysis (RTA) software calculates the percentage of passing filter reads that align to the PhiX reference genome. PhiX alignment is calculated over the first 25 cycles of the insert reads. If there are >2 mismatches in the first 25 cycles, a read will not be called as PhiX.
