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

The Kapa Library Amplification is apparently better for GC/AT rich sequences when compared to the enzyme included in the Illumina/NEB kits (Phusion?). It's not something we looked at though, so you'll have to take their word.

do you think it would be worth using Kappa for the pre library enrichment?
Just to avoid any bias...
