|Captive / Cultivated?
|Edmund Burke School
The dobsonfly was caught during the day between 80-90 degree Fahrenheit weather.
|Arthropoda Hexapoda Insecta Megaloptera Corydalidae
|DNA extraction location
|Single or Duplex PCR
|Gel electrophoresis system
DNA extraction: The dobsonfly’s abdomen was extracted to use for the DNA sample.
Gel electrophoresis lanes:
Lane 1: 10kb DNA Ladder
Sample A-2 tested negative for arthropod DNA, which means an error occurred with that DNA sample somewhere in this process or one of the earlier processes. We know we can trust our results have no contamination because our controls tested correctly.
|Explanation of confidence level
Since the dobsonfly sample tested negative for arthropod DNA, it is unknown whether or not the dobsonfly is infected with Wolbachia.
