Methods and apparatus for transformation of naturally competent cells

Procédés et appareil pour transformer des cellules naturellement compétentes


The present invention includes compositions and methods of co-transformation of naturally competent cells. In one aspect of the invention, a method is included for introducing nucleic acid sequences into one or more naturally competent cells in parallel. In other aspects, a heterogenic pool of co-transformed naturally competent cells and an apparatus for introducing two or more populations of nucleic acid sequences into a population of naturally competent cells in parallel are also included.
