|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|
|Group||Georgia Southern University|
Location: North End of Georgia Southern Armstrong Campus
Environment of Collection: Moist Tall Grass in Humid Weather
Method of Collection: Sweep Net
|Putative identification||Arthropoda Hexapoda Insecta Dermaptera|
|DNA extraction location||Partial 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 am confident in my results due to my controls displaying the correct amount of DNA bands. My positive control had two band, my negative control had one band, and my no template control has zero bands. I did notice the insect CO1 gene in my PCR results, however the low exposure in the picture makes it not visible.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence||
|Arthropod COI sequence||
|Summary||The Dermaptera was found to be negative for Wolbachia.|
