I remember seeing a reference (I think it was in biotechniques) for using PCR
to combine DNA fragments in situations where you don't have convenient
restriction sites.

As I recall you design 4 oligos to amplify the two DNA pieces, with the oligos
were you want to join the fragments carrying sequences homologous to the other
product at their 5' ends. Amplify the two fragments separately then mix the
products of the two PCR reactions and use the outer primers only to amplify
the joined product.

Any refereneces for this much appreciated.
