|Explanation of confidence level||
I am confident in my results because I correctly followed the protocols and steps as well as my ability to identify whether or not the bands determined if my insect was infected or not, which it was not. I do have some doubts because the ladder did not transfer into the gel, which might have caused a disturbance.
