Big dye sequencing reaction

4.1- Equipment

  • PCR machine

4.2- Reagents

4.3- Other consumables

4.4- Procedure

  • All the following steps must be made on ice
  • Prepare the following mix (quantities are for 1 tube):

- enhancer: 1 µl (if sequence GC rich) - big dye: 1 µl - primer M13: 0.33 µl (10 µM stock=3.3 pmol) - 5X buffer: 1.0 µl - water: 4.67 µl - cleaned template: 2 µl

  • put 8 µl of the mix in strip tubes
  • add 2 µl of template
  • Use a PCR machine for cycle sequecing (SWATI-SEQQ):

lid temp: 110.0°C 96°C: 10 sec 50°C: 5 sec 60°C: 4 min 25°C: pause

Cleaning of the sequencing reaction products by precipitation

Best protocols would be under Purification of DNA.

General Procedure goes as follows

  1. Add 1/10 volume of 3M sodium acetate and 2-3 volumes of 100% Ethanol
  2. Mix and freeze overnight in -20.
  3. Spin at full speed in a standard microcentrifuge at 4 degrees for 30 minutes.
  4. Dry the pellet.
  5. Add your desired quantity of water. Vortex and spin down to resuspend.
