Depends upon the sequencing kit (or not) that you are using plus the 
size of plasmid/pcr product you are sequencing. The kit manual will say 
and you should be able to find that online from the supplier

>Do you isolate DNA for this by kit (fast prep method) or by CTAB protocol?

It needs to be clean DNA and umpteen methods available. Most kits 
recommend a plasmid purification kit.

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
