Sanger Sequencing - Capillary Lengths - (Sep/06/2012 )

Dear all

We had an ABI 3130 sequence analyzer, and I was just wondering how do the different capillary lengths (36cm and 50cm) differ? Do they have anything to do with the read lengths?



in general: longer runs, better resolution, more bases read (depends on running conditions).
