Transformation Efficiencies of DH5α Competent E. coli and DH5α derivatives
Figure 1. Comparing DH5α competent E. coli and 5α derivatives in multiple product configurations. Transformation efficiency was measured by performing triplicate transformations, using 10 pg pUC19 DNA, per manufacturer’s recommended protocol. Each transformation was plated in duplicate.
