Check out the pT7Blue T-Vector Introductory Kit from Novagen (800-526-7319).
For $75 you get vector, competent cells, SOC medium, positive control and
protocols enough for 10 ligations. In our hands it has worked very well
every time we have used to clone PCR products.
Good Luck
PS. We do not have any bussiness relationship with Novagen.
