If you can have someone write a script to put your samples in the right
order, that would be the best option. What we've done is we just made an
excel spreadsheet that has a space to paste the sample list in, then
automatically rearranges the samples to fit a 96-well 8 channel loading
format. We load markers every 6 lanes to help with tracking, and the
spreadsheet includes these as well. We just copy and paste the sample
names into the sample sheet from there.
