Multiple loading and a salt gradient gel can give you this length
of read but I admit that it is a lot of work.  Our local sequencing
facility is currently giving reads approaching 1 kb (but I agree the
3' end is getting rather iffy).
   Where will all these tricks go when a generation of molecular
biologists has arrived that has never sequenced anything manually?
(I had a colleague in my last lab who was saddened that noone
purified their own ATP or enzymes any more...)
