Protocol notes

missing arthropod DNA due to unsuccessful sequencing


Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level Medium
Explanation of confidence level

no Wolbachia data- there are no DNA fragments in the corresponding lane. In Wolbachia sequencing, there were no clear base pairs after adding the Wolbachia primers because Wolbachia is not present in the DNA of the Agonum punctiforme.
