We have extended the technique of PCR-directed recombination in Saccharomyces cerevisiae to develop a simple method for plasmid or gene construction in the absence of suitable restriction sites. The DNA to be cloned is PCR-amplified with 30-40 bp of homology to a linearized yeast plasmid. Co-transformation into yeast results in homologous recombination at a position directed by the PCR oligonucleotides.
