Odd sequences in RNAseq fastq

Hi all,

Recently, I just ran iSeq for pair ended RNA sequencing and it gave me odd fastq results
Some of Read1(i7) sequences have Adapter sequences with poly G at the end.

However paired Read2(i5) sequences gave me random and poor quality sequences

I guess this problem came from library length which is shorter than sequencing length. However, I can't understand why Read2 sequence doesn't show matched short sequences (like adapter with G sequences) but random sequences. Is it cluster problems by short sequences?

I take it these are NextSeq or NovaSeq?

This is an adapter dimer that's read through the p7 sequence (ATCTCGTATGCCGTCTTCTGCTTG) into the FC and started spitting out Gs because no template = no signal = G in 2 color chemistry

OP says these are from iSeq.

Whoops. Same conclusion though. Gs are still the dark channel in the iSeq chemistry

Thanks for the answer @cmbetts

Then, random sequence in read2 is also signal of no template?
