Hi everybody,

As a novice on long distance PCR I have this question:
I want to use PCR for cloning a large (5 kb) gene. Does anybody know which 
polymerase (or pol. mix) is best (has a fidelity/ efficiency high enough) 
for performing this PCR in one step? (I heard about eg. TaKaRa, Pwo, Pfu, 
Taq:Pfu mix). 

Any suggestions or experiences are appreciated!

Please post here or send an e-mail directly to:

Thanks in advance!
