|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|
|Group||Georgia Southern University|
The insect was caught on the wall beside the Science Center at Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus on 8/22/23 at 1:35 PM.
|Putative identification||Arthropoda Hexapoda Insecta Hymenoptera|
|DNA extraction location||Whole arthropod|
|Single or Duplex PCR||Single Reaction|
|Gel electrophoresis system||Standard electrophoresis system|
A DNA extraction kit of in-house reagents was used.
|Explanation of confidence level||
There was no question that my insect was negative for Wolbachia, as it comes from a historically low Wolbachia infected order, and the gel electrophoresis results controls performed as expected. No band was present for the Wolbachia gene, demonstrating that it was negative.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence||
|Arthropod COI sequence||
|Summary||The Hymenoptera was found to be negative for Wolbachia.|
