|Arthropoda Crustacea Malacostraca Isopoda
|DNA extraction location
|Single or Duplex PCR
|Gel electrophoresis system
The gels on the wolbachia test round were very shallow and crumbled a bit so we had to let them sit longer in the molds. My DNA pellet was small and visible, and dark brown.
|Explanation of confidence level
Arthropod controls- not sure about the bands on walbachia dna, and negative arthropod. Walbachia controls- not sure about arthropod negative band.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence
|Arthropod COI sequence
|The Isopoda was found to be postive for Wolbachia.
