Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level High
Explanation of confidence level

There is not even a hint in the gel electrophoresis that my insect was infected with the Wolbachia 16S C01 gene. It was almost identical to the negative control. I know that I can trust my results because of what I have previously said and there is a low percentage for Hemiptera to be infected with Wolbachia.
