Lightbulb Sample Prep for NGS Library

Hi Guys,

I'm new to all this and still struggling with some aspects and terminologies.

I preparing a library from Streptococcus with multi random inserts.

My plan was to fragment (Hydroshear to ~1.2kb), T4 ligate and inverse PCR amplify the inserts before preparing for Illumina (Miseq) library prep. I've now read something about GC bias that can be incorporated during PCR. As far as I understand this is normally down to the short PCR during Library prep, my question is could this also be a problem during my enrichment stage before library prep?

The GC content of my bug is ~36%.

I look forward to any input

Many thanks in advance
