Hi All,

I've tried the new mobility file on my 377 (TTE, long run protocol) and it solves
the aforementioned problem fairly well although the beginning of my gel seemed to
be garbled more than usual.   The previously miscalled G's, however,  were gone.
The base caller seems to be working as well as it did when I was using version 1 of
the Big Dye Terminator Chemistry.
