Dear netters,
we are struggling with sequencing a 2.0 kbp DNA fragment
from gram-positive bacterium. The fragment is extremely GC-rich,
it's almost impossible to read the sequence in some regions.
We are using Applyed Biosystems automatic sequences and tried
both dye primer and dye terminators. No effect.
Any suggestions?
Thank you.
