|Putative identification||Hexapoda Insecta Diptera Drosophilidae Drosophila Drosophila melanogaster|
|Extraction kit||Thermoscientific GeneJet Genomic Purification|
|DNA extraction location||Whole arthropod|
|Single or Duplex PCR||Duplex Reaction|
|Gel electrophoresis system||MiniPCR|
|Explanation of confidence level||
We are confident in our controls. For our positive control showed the two genes being expressed while the negative control only had one one gene, the COI. The water control also proved further our procedure was thorough for it did not have any genes.
