Technical Abstract: To date a fully automated process for the mass transformation of cDNA libraries into yeast or bacteria does not exist. In this work, we present the first in a series of experiments demonstrating it is possible to transform yeast or bacteria in high throughput starting with colonies of the desired target cells. The reagents used are kept at room temperature. The resulting transformed cells are processed for in vivo expressed protein and the protein analyzed using plate assays using protocols developed for a fully automated workcell. Here we provide data generated from the protocols used to validate these processes.
