Description:

DNA transformation is a naturally occuring but rare event in which DNA can be transferred into bacteria. In 1970, Morton Mandel and Akiko Higa discovered a way to make E. coli more "competent" for transforming foreign DNA. Their calcium chloride method is widely used today to obtain high-efficiency transforming cells.
