    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: 10561, Q&A: 1
    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.
    The Inoue Method for Preparation and Transformation of Competent E. coli: "Ultra Competent" Cells
    Author:  Hogune Im, date: 10/20/2011, view: 29162, Q&A: 1
    This protocol differs from other procedures in that the bacterial culture is grown at 18 °C rather than the conventional 37 °C. Otherwise, the protocol is unremarkable and follows a fairly standard course. Why growing the cells at low temperature ...
    RbCl Super Competent Cells
    Author:  Xiyan Li, date: 06/05/2011, view: 19002, Q&A: 3
    This method is used to inexpensively prepare home-made competent cells of E. coli. The transformation efficiency is at the high end of chemical-efficient competent cells, and close to library-efficient competent cells.
