A Quick and Easy Method for Making Competent Escherichia coli Cells for Transformation Using Rubidium Chloride
Authors:  Nidhi Sharma, M. Ximena Anleu Gil and Diego Wengier, date: 11/05/2017, view: 1442, Q&A: 0
This protocol describes a quick and efficient method to make competent E. coli cells for transformation using rubidium chloride. Commercial competent cells are expensive and this protocol provides a cheaper alternative to them.
Leaf Clearing Protocol to Observe Stomata and Other Cells on Leaf Surface
Author:  Nidhi Sharma, date: 09/05/2017, view: 2053, Q&A: 0
In this protocol, leaves are cleared and fixed in an ethanol and acetic acid solution, and mounted in Hoyer’s solution. The cleared leaves are imaged under differential interference contrast (DIC) microscope. This protocol is beneficial for studying ...
