Suppose you're working in the lab with your favorite plasmid clone.  Being a 
slob, you're not wearing gloves and have managed to get a small amount of 
plasmid DNA on the tip of your finger.  As you switch off the lab lights 
to get a better look at that gel, there is a strong discharge of static 
electricity from your finger (w/DNA) to the grounded light switch.  Could 
your finger be _electroporated_ ???

If you are working with a Luciferase vector, check your finger-tips 
tonight and let me know...

Just a thought,
Dave.
