Question Library with strong secondary structures

What is known about the strand displacement activity of the DNA polymerase Illumina uses for bridge amplification? I have a library with strong secondary structures and I am worried that clusters do not form well due to the secondary structures. Does anyone have any tips to improve cluster formation for such a library?

Anecdotally we find MiSeq to be the best sequencer for odd samples. You best bet is to sequence this library there. You can always a run a nano flowcell at a much reduced cost to test before you run full library.

You can also try a 95C denaturation (instead of the usual NaOH denaturation). 1 minute at that temperature (in RSB or EB should be fine), just make sure you have a decent volume there so you don't evaporate everything. TruSeq Custom Amplicon product does this method to make the libraries nice and single stranded for cluster generation.
