Transformation Hints

Hi,

I know that this has been discussed here but I am trying to find hints to
up our transformation efficiency.  Right now, we are hovering around
25,000 per ug of DNA.  I have heard reports of over a million per ug but
even using the now famous TRAFO method, we were not able to improve things
much, if at all.  I know from experience that transformation efficiency is
very strain dependent but we would like to at least get 100,000 per ug
reproducibly, mainly for library screens.  Any hints? Electroporation
perhap?
