Anything known about the clustering procedure yet?
They still need to be quantified. Assuming similarity of HiSeq 4000 flow cell to HiSeq x, they can be overloaded which will reduce the reads %PF. Low loading will increase the number of duplicate reads. Illumina manual also states that underloading can reduce or result in unacceptable %PF. Loading is depend on library type (Nano or PCR-free).
