|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|
|Group||Hampton Roads Academy|
My ant was located on a window seek near house plants. It had 2 antennas, 6 legs, and no wings.
|Putative identification||Hexapoda Insecta Hymenoptera|
|Extraction kit||Edwards Buffer|
|DNA extraction location||Whole arthropod|
|Single or Duplex PCR|
|Gel electrophoresis system||MiniOne|
My pellet was small and white. When using the pipet to take out part of the supernatant, I disturbed the pellet. I had to redo this step.
|Explanation of confidence level||
My confidence level is low because I cannot see a precise band. It appears to be more of a smear.
The band was faint. First time doing the experiment, not sure about the +A band.
|Wolbachia 16S sequence||
|Arthropod COI sequence||
|Summary||The Hymenoptera was found to be negative for Wolbachia.|
