It might be worthwhile asking this question in
bionet.molbio.methds-reagnts since it seems to be more concerned with
molecular biology. What are you trying to transform your E. coli with?
Which strain of E. coli are you using? Does electroporation not work
because you have tried it or is it known not to work with your strain?

Sorry if I am asking so many questions but it might be helpful if you
provide some additional background information.
