Protocol notes

Both gels ran for just over an hour, before being examined for bands


Wolbachia presence Unknown
Confidence level Low
Explanation of confidence level

The Wolbachia gel produced almost no evidence. The bands were either too faint to read or the DNA ran off the gel, presumably because of a PCR error causing the Wolbachia samples to not be amplified enough.
