You are lowering the value of this forum. About half of the traffic here 
is based on discussions of what is the best kit to "buy" rather than what
is really important, the technical details of the procedures. 

As with Exo III deletions, get yourself a copy of Maniatis, a few papers
from the library (I recommend the Kunkel procedure) and yes, buy a few 
salts from the stockroom. You don't need the high priced hand-holding
from Biosham (TM). 

Then come back with some intelligent questions, and I'm sure you will find
more than enough help here.
