I have been using the cycle sequencing kit from Epicentre called
SequiTherm. Not bad. Signal pretty faint with 35S after 2 day exposure.
Can read 300 bases usually. I don't think the problem is with the kit
but with the amount of template DNA I start out with. I need to optimize my
recovery of template DNA prior to sequencing. I'm using one biotinylated
primer and recovering the ssDNA with magnetic strepavidin beads.
