Automated DNA sequencing methods using robotic workstations have been previously reported, however it is often an arduous task to import these technologies into a laboratory. We describe protocols making use of a Beckman Biomek 1000 robotic workstation to prepare polymerase chain reactions (PCRs) and "cycle sequencing" reactions to be performed in a Perkin Elmer Cetus System 9600 thermocycler. The combination of these two instruments allows a high throughput of PCR and DNA sequencing reactions. The programs described are freely available via anonymous file transfer protocol (FTP).
