Transforming Escherichia coli with a Recombinant Plasmid

Unit 8: Nobel Prize-Winning Biotechnology
Lesson 4 of 9

Objective: Students will be able to use a technique called transformation to get their engineered recombinant plasmids into bacterial cells which will express novel genes inherited during this process.

Big Idea: The clever use of a rare event in nature will increase the chance of getting our recombinant plasmids into the bacterial cells, E.coli!
