This is not really LONG PCR. I would just suggest using Taq and hot
starting your PCR. HoweverIf you have gene specific primers, I would suggest
using the rtTH ( from Perkin elmer ) and hot PCR.
This helps if your DNA has big time 2ndary structures as you can do the
annealing/extention at relatively high temps and help keep your DNA linear.
