MySQL doesn't use sequences. You will use AUTO_INCREMENT fields. The following CREATE TABLE statement shows an example:
CREATE TABLE person (
PERSON_ID int(10) NOT NULL auto_increment,
FIRST_NAME varchar(50) default NULL,
MIDDLE_NAME varchar(50) default NULL,
LAST_NAME varchar(50) default NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (PERSON_ID)
Then when you insert into the table just don't specify a value for the PERSON_ID:
INSERT INTO person (first_name, last_name) VALUES ('John', 'Doe')
