I am an intern in biology institute. I have a 17.3kbp plasmid need to transform to Ecoli. But I have tried many time but have no or very few colony on LB plate.

I know large plasmid have less frequency in transformation, How can I improve chance of successful transformation?

Thanks everyone.

    $\begingroup$ Other than what tyersome has suggested, I want to add that questions that involve troubleshooting of lab experiments should include the detailed protocol used (or provide a link to a protocols article if it is exactly followed). $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Jul 26 '19 at 8:53
