Well think about it. How on earth are you going to be able to tell which 
base belongs to which sequence in the mixture at any one position.

Imagine you could get an A and C then an  A and T in the next position.

Software could assign AA, AT, CA or CT. Keep doing this at every 
position and you will have hundreds of possible sequence combinations. 
If you know the sequence of one of the mix DNA's then it will help, 
otherwise I would start again.


The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get
sliced from time to time....
