Has anyone done direct PCR sequencing of fragments extracted from
RAPD gels?  In normal PCR different primers are used at the 2 ends
of the amplimer.  One of the primers can be selected and labeled
to sequence one sense strand.  In Random Amplification of Polymorphic 
DNA only a single primer is used at both ends.  Labeled extension in only 
one sense is needed for the sequencing. No sequence information is known
for the amplimers.
