Protocol notes

I had to centrifuge my DNA solution 3 times in the PCR procedure due to the filter getting clogged and trying to get more liquid at the bottom of the tube.


Wolbachia presence Unknown
Confidence level Medium
Explanation of confidence level

My confidence levels are in the medium area because once we were crushing the DNA and filtering it mine clogged the filter which most likely cause my results to be inconclusive.
