Facilitation of Electroporation Using Gold-plated Mesoporous Membranes
I am studying the process of electroporation and it's effects on cells. Electroporation is the action or process of introducing DNA or chromosomes into bacteria or other cells using a pulse of electricity to briefly open the pores in the cell membranes. I have previously helped in creating a more-efficient electroporator, and am now studying the pores that are formed in the cell membranes of electroplated cells.
