It can also be obtained from Clontech, and Clontech's electrocompetent
MC1061/P3 were considerably more efficient in my hands.  Someone else
(BRL?) makes a different P3-containing bug, I think DH10alpha; I tried
them once and found that they grew much more slowly than MC1061/P3, which
on the timetable I was using was inconvenient, but they may be worth a
look as well.

No affiliation with any companies.
