Hello yeast people,
	I'm making (or attempting) to make highly competent yeast to screen for 
mutants.  The strain I'm using is SFY526, and using the protocol by Guarente 
(Methods Enzym), I'm only getting about 30-50 clones per 20 ng of plasmid 
plated (10^3/ug).  Does anybody have any ideas on how to improve, what the 
critical parameters are, or alternate protocols for making yeast competent?  
Should I be starting parallel cultures to take at different ODs and comparing 
electrocompetency?  Mucho thanks in advance,
