The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is the technique of choice used to obtain DNA for cloning, because it rapidly provides high amounts of desired DNA fragments and allows the easy introduction of extremities adequate for enzyme restriction or homologous recombination, and of artificial, native, or modified sequence elements for specific applications. In this context, the use of megaprimer-based PCR strategies allows the versatile and fast assembly and amplification of tailor-made DNA sequences readily available for cloning. In this chapter, we describe the design and use of a megaprimer-based ...
