Re:  homologous recombination in E. coli:

There have been several articles on the technique "recombinant circle 
PCR" in BioTechniques (1993, 1994, I think).  You might want to do a 
search through BioTechNet.  Just Telnet to biotechnet.com and login as 
BIOTECH.  Password is "technique".  This will give you the 
public-accessible features of biotechnet, including a database of all 
BioTechniques articles.  The interface is all menu-driven, so it should 
not be a problem to run it.

I believe the length of homologous ends used in recomb. cir.pcr is about 
20 bp minmum.

good luck.
