	3' or 5'? Radioactive, non-radioactive? Quick and dirty, or long
and cumbersome? As for 5' radioactive q&d we use
	(vol. 10 ul)
	30 uCi [gamma-32P]dATP (~3ul)
	5 pmol primer
	1 x PNK buffer (1 ul 10 x)
	10 U Polynucleotide Kinase (PNK)
	TE ad 10 ul

	incubate @ 37 deg. C. for 40', add 100 ul stop mix (Phenol, EDTA),
purify with Sephadex G-25 column / spin column.
