Protocol notes

Lane 1: DNA Template

Lane 2: Insect- Hymenoptera

Lane 3: (+) control

Lane 4: (-) control

Lane 5: Water


Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level High
Explanation of confidence level

In the lane for the insect, a band appeared and matched the negative control. Since this band appeared, it shows that DNA was properly extracted and isolated. There is no band that lines up with the positive control bands. Overall, the confidence level is very high.
