|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|
|Group||Acton-Boxborough Regional High School|
|Putative identification||Hexapoda Insecta Hymenoptera Formicidae|
|Extraction kit||DNeasy (Qiagen)|
|DNA extraction location||Whole arthropod|
|Single or Duplex PCR||Single Reaction|
|Gel electrophoresis system||Edvotek Gel Electrophoresis|
Well number four in the image above contains the Wolbachia DNA from our arthropod.
|Explanation of confidence level||
Our Wolbachia gel electrophoresis exhibits a defined band at a distance in correlation with the ladder, indicating Wolbachia presence. However, our control group for arthropod DNA extraction did not display a band, which makes us unsure about our DNA extraction. This lack of a band in our control may also be a result of faulty PCR for the Arthropod DNA.

|Summary||The Formicidae was found to be postive for Wolbachia.|
