Default Do we need two DIFFERENT adapters to generate Pair-end Reads ?

Hi All,

I am wondering: Must we have at least two Different adapters to generate Pair-end Reads(Take Illumina Platform for example) ?

I found this tread in SEQanswers below

"vinay052003" said " I am not sure about other technilogies, but for Illumina 5' end sequencing cycle starts right from the start (5' end) of the actual sequence. So adapters sequence contamination in the final read would be only on 3' end. " Do you agree?

Thanks a lot for any response!!

Yes, but the two different adaptor sequences have a common end that is annealed to create a single Y-adaptor which is ligated to both ends of the insert.
