Occasionally, E. coli cells are found in nature that are resistant to the toxic effects of the antibiotic ampicillin. In this exercise, students create such an ampicillin-resistant population of E. coli by introducing into bacterial cells a plasmid that contains an ampicillin-resistance gene. Sufficient sterile materials are supplied for sixteen platings. The introduction of plasmid DNA into bacterial cells is called transformation and has enabled scientists to obtain large quantities of more than 1000 genes including those for human interferon, insulin, and growth hormone.
