Methods of transformation — The method of preparation of competent cells, the length of time of heat shock, temperature of heat shock, incubation time after heat shock, growth medium used, and various additives, all can affect the transformation efficiency of the cells.
The presence of contaminants as well as ligase in a ligation mixture can reduce the transformation efficiency in electroporation,  and inactivation of ligase or chloroform extraction of DNA may be necessary for electroporation, alternatively only use a tenth of the ligation mixture to reduce the amount of contaminants.
Protocols for chemical method however exist for making supercompetent cells that may yield a transformation efficiency of over 1 x 10 9. Damage to DNA — Exposure of DNA to UV radiation in standard preparative agarose gel electrophoresis procedure for as little as 45 seconds can damage the DNA, and this can significantly reduce the transformation efficiency.
Such exposure however should be limited to a very short time if the DNA is to be recovered later for ligation and transformation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
