Bacterial Transformation Kit

Item # 154703

Advanced—For students with moderate experience in microbiology.

Students treat streptomycin-resistant bacterial cells with a detergent to lyse the cells, thus releasing the DNA. Then they incubate streptomycin-sensitive bacterial cells in contact with free DNA. The streptomycin-sensitive cells are transformed and can then grow in the presence of streptomycin as streptomycin-resistant cells.
