Phenotypic and Genotypic Changes in Bacteria

Learners investigate a rapid method to render the bacterium Escherichia coli "competent" to uptake plasmid DNA. They demonstrate the phenotypic changes associated with transformation. They perform a cell resuspension from the transformed and untransformed colonies to demonstrate that only transformed cells have the plasmid present.
