I have a bacterial genome (illumina) which I have to assemble. On trimming the data with Trimmomatic, i get errors when I assemble with Unicycler. But when I assemble the data without trimming it gets assembled. Anyone know what might be wrong? Please assist.

The reads are probably getting trimmed down too much, creating shorter sequences that do not assemble well. Run FastQC on the data before trimming and after and review. You might need to adjust the trim settings, use a different trim tool, or skip trimming altogether.
