Searching for point mutations using pregap4 and gap4

Hello,

we are looking for a point mutation in a bac. 

Trying to process the data (for numerous different primer
pairs) using a simple text database as follows:


# BAC  database 031121 ES, abi377 files from 031106
#ID                     ST      PR           WT
1ATG1_11_Fa             2       1       1ATG1_col_F
1ATG1_11_Fb             2       1       1ATG1_col_F
1ATG1_11_Ra             2       2       1ATG1_col_R
1ATG1_col_F             2       1       1ATG1_col_F
1ATG1_col_R             2       2       1ATG1_col_R
1ATG2_11_Fb             2       1       1ATG2_col_F
1ATG2_11_Rb             2       2       1ATG2_col_R
1ATG2_col_F             2       1       1ATG2_col_F
1ATG2_col_R             2       2       1ATG2_col_R
1ATG3_11_Fa             2       1       1ATG3_col_F
1ATG3_11_Fb             2       1       1ATG3_col_F
1ATG3_11_Rb             2       2       1ATG3_col_R
1ATG3_col_F             2       1       1ATG3_col_F
1ATG3_col_R             2       2       1ATG3_col_R


always fails with error messages:

Tracediff: Insufficient sequence overlap to compute trace difference
for /home/ediths/Projects/BAC/BAC031106abi377/1ATG1_col_R.ztr.
Tracediff: Insufficient sequence overlap to compute trace difference
for /home/ediths/Projects/BAC/BAC031106abi377/1ATG1_11_Ra.ztr.
...
<snip>


Processing the 3 batches of data, 1ATG1, 1ATG2, 1ATG3, separately
in the same way appears to work perfectly well.

Since I would like to process all the data in a single run, is there
any way to do this?

Thanks for your help,
Edith Schlagenhauf


N.B. is it possible to provide WL and WR info by way of a simple text
database at all?
