Thank you Chipper.

I would like to add some note to the explanation.

The enrichment PCR does regenerate the DNA strand which was degraded by UDG, but the adaptors on both sides of the strands can not hybridized with the lawn oligos on the flow cell, so these strands will be excluded during the cluster generation and eventually not be sequenced.
