I've had success just taking a small amount of raw lysate and adding it to the
PCR; from memory, I think I used 1ul and 0.1ul of the crude lysate obtained
from a phage plug (and eluted in a 1ml volume of phage buffer).  Less would
probably work fine too.  It wasn't necessary to boil or otherwise treat the
phage.


Cheers,

Martin
