Amount of plasmid DNA used

I have a few suggestions:

  • the amount of plasmid used should better be posted in µg. Are there any recommendations for the exact amount?
  • There are a lot of abbreviations (TSS) used. maybe this should be clarified as well.

In my hands, shaking can reduce the transformation efficiency, specially for Ampicillin resistance.

Shaking at which stage exactly? And I don't think there is an interdependency between transformation efficiency, antibiotic and shaking... (damn I forgot how to change indentation) --Mathias Klode 07:23, 28 April 2009 (EDT)
