- Cut vector (10ug)  with EcoRV and treat for 2h in PCR buffer (100ul)
with dTTP (2mM) and 5u of Taq pol, at 72C (authors use Life
Technologies buffer and Taq)
- Perform phenol/chloroform extraction and ethanol precipitation. Dry
the pellet and resusupend in small volume of water
- Ligate in a volume of 50ul for 16h using 2U ligase (authors use Life
Technologies ligase buffer)
- Run agarose gel and cut the sharp band of unligated linearized
vector (most of it contains T-overhangs) away from ligated vector
molecules (which ligated because they didn't have the T-overhang)
- Purify DNA from the gel slice (authors use GeneClean)
- Run a sample on a gel to quantify.

Authors get cloning efficiency of PCR products up to 80%
