Maxam-Gilbert Who?!

How come you do not use Sanger sequencing? It is a lot easier to do, and you
ought to be able to design a sequencing primer that would give the same
result as a Maxam-Gilbert reaction.

M-G is obsolete, as far as I know. Guess that is why you can't find it
anywhere. If other people out there find me to be wrong, I would appreciate
your correction.
