Minipreps as conventional protocols for sequencing?  There are some that 
will tell you that all you need to do is a miniprep with a PEG precip and 
phenol extraction thrown in but the intensity of the claims is in direct 
relation to the level of testosterone.  If you don't have the cleanest 
prep possible you're just taking chances.
