Protocol notes
  1. Phytomyzinae
  2. Control: definitive Wolbachia positive arthropod
  3. Control: definitive Wolbachia positive DNA


Wolbachia presence Yes
Confidence level High
Explanation of confidence level

Worked under sterile circumstances. Results look promising with two definite Wolbachia-positive probes.

bp n seems to be exactly right. 438bp for Wolbachia and 708bp for COI.

(We are confident workers :). )

Wolbachia 16S sequence
Arthropod COI sequence
Summary The Agromyzidae was found to be postive for Wolbachia.
