RACE and Clonetech

I'm currently using Lifetech's 5 prime RACE system, it seemed to me when I
was looking, more logical and robust than the Clontech systems, and a lot
cheaper. In addition if you buy (or make) the 3 prime adapter primer, then
the 5prime kit becomes a 3prime kit as well.

I have made the 5 prime part work, the reason I don't have the end yet has
more to do with my gene than the kit, but I have made progress and the
tailing works well assesed by sequencing. I haven't got the 3 prime end
yet due to low specificity but pcr tells me my gene is there, I just have
to design a screen for it.
