Electroporation

Electroporation is the process of introduction something, usually DNA, to a molecule through the process of an electric shock. A couple hundred V shocked is sent through a solution of the cell and the thing being inserted. This shock causes pores to form in the membrane of the cell and allowing the substance to move inside of the cell.
