In molecular biology, electroporation is commonly used for cell transfection or transformation of non-viral DNA transfer of bacteria, yeast, and plant plastids. Electroporation is also highly effective for the introduction of foreign genes into tissue culture cells, especially mammalian cells.
Example of electroporation:
E. coli plasmid insertion with CaCl2 on ice with heat shock.
