The band was really faint and there wasn’t enough DNA to get a sequence.
|Explanation of confidence level||
There wasn’t enough DNA to actually come to a full conclusion, so our confidence level is low.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence||
|Arthropod COI sequence||
|Summary||The Coleoptera was found to be negative for Wolbachia.|
