|DNA extraction location
|Single or Duplex PCR
|Gel electrophoresis system
We followed the recommended conditions for Wolbachia primers only. We used the standard reagents from MiniPCR.
|Explanation of confidence level
My control wasn’t that bright but it was easy enough to tell.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence
|Arthropod COI sequence
|The Lithobiomorpha was found to be negative for Wolbachia.
