I'm not sure how to evaluate the results to determine next steps.
Thanks in advance!
You could try ligating, then quantifying your sample with Qubit to determine the total amount of DNA present.
Then quantify the same sample with the KAPA quantification kit which will only measure the amount of ligated material in your sample.
Ligation efficiency can then be determined by comparing the Qubit number to the Kapa number.
