   The minimal T7 promoter (17 nt) is 5' TAA TAC GAC TCA CTA TA 3'.
However, the first nucleotide to be incorporated into RNA has to be a G
(otherwise the efficiency drops to the floor) and then the second is best
to be also a G (although thats not that critical), so make it as above plus
G(G)..... 3'
