96-well minipreps

Hi Networkers,

I hope someone can help me...

I used to have a very useful protocol for doing minipreps in 96 well
plates.  Now I can't find the paper, and I can't remember the authors names
or the journal, nor even the year!  I've done a bit of literature searching
for it, but I just can't find it.

Does anyone out there know this method and have a reference?  An outline of
the method as I remember it follows:

 Grow up bugs in 1ml tubes on 96well format (available USA/Scientific Plastics).

 Using multichannel pipette, transfer 100ul each to 100ul glycerol for stocks.

 Tranfer another 100ul to another 96-well plate.  Pellet cells

 Prep DNA by a slightly modified alkaline lysis procedure. (This is the bit
that I need the paper for!

The DNA quality was fine for restriction analysis, but not great for sequencing.

Thanks for your help.....
