Cloning from Low Melt Agarose
(Nonet Lab - Washington University School of Medicine)
A quick method for cloning fragments with the following ends: 1) a double cut fragment being cloned into a double cut vector if the two restriction sites are non-cohesive. 2) a single cut fragment being cloned into a single cut vector if the vector has been properly dephosphorylated. 3) A small blunt fragment, such as PCR product, being cloned into a dephosphorylated blunt vector.

Ligations in Low Melting Temperature Agarose
(Donis Keller Lab)
Ligation of plasmid vector and insert DNAs is carried out directly in melted agarose gel slices. This method is used for subcloning well defined restriction fragments and is probably not suitable for genomic library construction. The method works for both blunt-end and cohesive termini ligations.
