Transforming E. coli with Yeast DNA... HOW!?

Dear Susan,

could you give some parameters for the electroporation method ?
Do you use a single pulse ? kV, ohm, capacity ?
Or perhaps you can refer to a publication where the method is described.

We're using the method described by Marcil_R, Higgins_DR:
Direct transfer of plasmid DNA from yeast to E.coli by 
electroporation, Nucl. Acids Res, 20/4, p 917 (1992).

It seems to work for some yeast strains but not for others. But
the method is *very* simple and worth a trial !
