Thanks for any

Call FMC, they should give you the protocol and the reference for sequencing
from Sea-Plaque agarose. It is a rather obscure publication, but the idea is to
cut out a band from this low-gelling temp. agarose, melt it, dilute and
introduce into a cycle sequencing reaction. You should have an idea which volume
of agarose contains 25-50 pmol of your fragment. That's it.
I hope this helps,
