The results do vary by sequencer (the Hiseq 4000 is not - or only minimally - bothered by dual matched indices); the NovaSeq OTOH can tank with these. Likely library insert sizes can also play a...

How do you know? I would suggest to follow the library prep protocol all the way to the end and then assess the library or lack thereof.

PCR-free Y-adapter libraries can migrate in funky ways and can hide adapter dimers. In short they are difficult to QC.
I would suggest a diagnostic PCR with a small aliquot of the libraries:...

"random" enzymatic DNA fragmentation - how does it work?

Hi All,

almost all sequencing library preparation kit providers now offer kits promising "random" enzymatic DNA fragmentation that are not based on transposon tagmentation - adapters are ligated...

Bukowski is correct. RNA-seq library prep protocols (starting from RNA) are optimized for consistency to allow quantitative DGE analysis. Your cDNA prep protocol might not be.
Is your cDNA...

In the age of long read sequencing (PacBio, Nanopore) and linked reads (10X Genomics), "mate pair" sequencing is as obsolete as 454.

Nothing about the read metrics raises warning flags - they could certainly have generated longer library molecules though since they did not multiplex the library.

Hi Kujin,

to my knowledge the Lohman protocol should work, as is, on the iSeq - as any other Truseq library design. We do not have an iSeq however. Do you want to optimize it for paired-end...

Randomprimer-dimers will be basically unavoidable for your low, unmeasurable input.
If the oligos are a separate reagent, you could try to reduce their concentration.

bcl2fastq will only transfer the UMI information into the read header and trim them out of the reads as an option - nothing else.
UMI-tools are more sophisticated and have many additional functions.
