|Captive / Cultivated?
|Neuqua Valley High School
The fly was flying at a rather fast pace and was very anxious it seemed. I had to trap it with a banana since it was so fast. As it is incredibly small, it is hard to distinguish many features without a magnifying glass.
|Arthropoda Hexapoda Insecta Diptera Drosophilidae Drosophila Drosophila melanogaster
|DNA extraction location
|Single or Duplex PCR
|Gel electrophoresis system
|Standard electrophoresis system
|Explanation of confidence level
The controls were constant through the experiment, and the gel electrophoresis was done in a method repeated by others prior and therefore reliable results. Therefore, I am confident that my arthropod is infected with Wolbachia.
