My question is, if they are annealed to full length library molecules how come AMPure is able to remove them? AMPure will not denature the libraries so if they are annealed they will be co-purified, right? am I missing something?

Hi Sergio,
I agree. I would not expect it to work, but it does. We've tried a denature+snap cool prior to ampure and it performs the same as a non-pre-denatured ampure.
I have no explanation at the juncture, just giving the results we see.
