Hey guys why bother trying to isolate the uncut vector from the cut
vector. Instead chop up the vector further with a Hapaxoterministic
Enzyme. They are readily available and when used can make these kids of
cloning problems non-existant. For references on how to use them see:

I don't believe that curiosity killed the cat.
I think it just did the wrong experiment.
