Just to be clear: we do not modify the SMART procedure in the way I describe above. I just mentioned it as a possible solution to a problem we do not seem to have but does plague others.

About the addition of an oligo C tail to the reverse transcribed strand: that is the basis of second strand synthesis in the SMART kit. SMART uses an oligo G tailed second strand synthesis primer.
