I had a very positive experience with long PCR frgments. I was able to 
clone 5 and 8 Kb PCR fragments without any problems using a T-vector 
from Novagen [pT7Blue(R), FAX # (608)-238-1388, Madison, WI, USA]. 
However, I have no idea whether or not this strategy can be used for 
cloning >10 Kb PCR fragments. If you have any sucess,please keep me 
Good luck!
