Default GC content

It seems that solexa prefer to sequencing higher GC content region. Does anybody face to this problem?

Yes, we have run into this phenomenon. It is also mentioned here: Dohm et al., Substantial biases in ultra-short read data sets from

Thanks. I also have read that paper, but they deal with beta genome etc.

Any thoughts on GC content bias on the depth of coverage? I would like to see evened-out depth of coverage by taking GC-content into account; but it doesnt look even from the R linear model linearization I tried!

Are you sure it doesn't come from the library preparation?
If you read this article:
you'll see that in the last purification step, when you extract your PCR from the gel, you can improve A-T rich sequence representation by melting agarose at room temperature...

Did you try to compare a RT melted sample and a 50 melted sample?
