Sequence Reactions For Large Insert
The following dye-labeled
terminator reaction chemistries have been designed to balance
conservation of reagents with the resulting sequence product
signal strength. When coupled with BACPAC Resource template
preparation, N-free read lengths of >400nts can be expected.
More emphasis can be placed on reagent conservation by further
volume reduction or dilution; or on sequence product signal
strength by increasing the reaction size.

Carlo Artieri (Simon
Frasier University) notified us per email (January 6, 2005)
that the standard BAC-end sequencing (BES)primer from the
SP6 end (as recommended on our web site)did not work well
with the pTARBAC2.1 vector (in the salmon BAC library, CHORI-214).
A new primer designed at Simon Frazier University worked
flawlessly to obtain BES data for more than 4,300 BAC clones.
The new primer is closer to the vector/insert junction and
has the following sequence: actgtggcttgttttacaattt. (Personal
