|Explanation of confidence level||
Following the test, we were able to see the separate bands of DNA depicting the insect’s DNA, as well as any further bands of DNA. As you can see in the image, there are two distinct bands, the first of which is the insect’s DNA, allowing us to conclude that the second band present to represents the Wolbachia DNA present in the insect.
