I have sequenced PCR products directly after cleaning them up with
Wizard PCR preps, NaOH de-naturation as per plasmid sequencing in the
Sequenase manual, then following the Sequenase
protocol except that the termination mix has 10% DMSO added
(the slight change in termination mix conc. doesn't seem to matter).
The results could be a wee bit temperamental but might be worth
giving it a bash, you may even be able to get away with ethanol
purification of the PCR products.
