Check this article. Is anyone done something like this? (

Direct sequencing of short amplicons
To avoid unnecessary PCR amplification steps, which would potentially exacerbate biases, we can perform extremely deep sequencing of short amplicons using locus-specific primers that possess tails that are capable of hybridisation to the oligos tethered to the flowcell surface. The tailless forward and reverse oligos are then used as primers in the sequencing steps
(Supplementary Protocol 10 online).
