Lab FAQs


How do I test the transformation efficiency of my competent cells?

Please see the protocol on how to make competent cells for instructions on how to calculate transformation efficiency.

Why isn't there any location information for part X?

Please take a look at the part status box in the upper right hand corner of the part page. We only have physical DNA for parts whose status is 'Available' (as opposed to DNA Planning, Building, etc.)

How do I check if a part is correct?

Please follow the instructions on the Registry's Help and Documentation page.
