Does stitching involving using the reverse of primers ?
How do you reassemble DNA chains in the right order....

That was dated early in the days of the Human Genome Project, when they were
still developing computer techniques for stitching together the DNA sequence
for millions of bases on each chromosome, from fragments that were each only
few hundred bases long. The Human Genome Project is basically complete,
although more detailed maps with fewer gaps in coverage are still being
as witness the X chromosome just this past week. However, large portions of
Y chromosome are very resistant to these techniques. The "complete" Y
sequence was published in 2003, but it only covered about 23 million bases
out of the
~60 million bases.
