|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|
|Group||Georgia Southern University|
I collected my insect with a net outside the Georgia Southern Armstrong Science Center. It was 1 p.m., sunny, and 87 degrees.
|Putative identification||Arthropoda Hexapoda Insecta Lepidoptera|
|DNA extraction location||Abdomen|
|Single or Duplex PCR||Single Reaction|
|Gel electrophoresis system||Standard electrophoresis system|
DNA extraction kit of in-house reagents was used
|Explanation of confidence level||
I highly do not believe there is any Wolbachia in my insect. I believe this because local data has shown only an 8% chance of a Lepidoptera containing Wolbachia. The gel electrophoresis also produced a negative result for Wolbachia.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence||
|Arthropod COI sequence||
|Summary||The Lepidoptera was found to be negative for Wolbachia.|
