Electroporation is the artificial means of DNA transfer into the cells using an electrical field. It is defined as the use of electrical field to reversibly form micropores in the cell membrane. It is relatively new, simple and rapid technique to introduce DNA in a wide variety of cells. This technique is based on the original observation of Zimmermann in 1983 that high current pulses can induce cell membranes to fuse.
