Can xGen UDI-UMI Adapters be used for RNA-seq?

Yes, xGen UDI-UMI Adapters can be used for RNA-seq. However, it is important to note that stranded RNA-seq libraries constructed using xGen UDI-UMI Adapters have the insert strandedness flipped (i.e., to the opposite strand) when compared to standard Illumina TruSeq™ adapters. As such, this strand flip must be accounted for in data analysis.
