Again, there is no trick. Buy a good CIAP (we use promega), look after it, use their buffer
and a tiny amount of the enzyme ( as suggested by most protocols ) and away you go.
To get good ligation it's worth phenol-chloroform after CIAP and a good quantitation of
vector and insert.
I used to get poor results too, but if you take No shortcuts, it's easier now.
