    actually I kind of have the formula of the transformation efficiency

    colonies on plate/ amount of DNA plated in (ug)

    I just don't know how to find the amounf of DNA plated..... well i kind of have an answer
    but it's really small..... but this website saids that the the transformation efficiency should be a big number.... something like 10^9 that they got from their example........

    so, i don't know if i am doing it right.......
