Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level High
Explanation of confidence level

The results of my controls (+,-,NTC) were all as expected. My positive control was positive for both the insect and Wolbachia gene. My negative control was positive for the insect gene and negative for the Wolbachia gene. My NTC was negetive for both genes. On top of that, my specimen tested positive for the insect gene. Becuase everything was as expected, I have high confidence in how the experiment was completed and therefore believe that my insect was not infected with Wolbachia.
