|Captive / Cultivated?||Wild-caught|
|Group||Woburn Memorial High School|
Found it under a rock when the temperature of the local area was around 70-80 Fahrenheit.
|Putative identification||Arthropoda Crustacea Malacostraca Isopoda Armadillidae|
|Extraction kit||Edwards Buffer|
|DNA extraction location||Abdomen|
|Single or Duplex PCR||Single Reaction|
|Gel electrophoresis system||Edvotek Gel Electrophoresis|
Gel was moved a bit after having the DNA injected into the wells.
|Explanation of confidence level||
All of the controls, positive and negative, worked. If you look very closely there is a dim band closest to where a DNA band for Wolbachia would be expected
