Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level Medium
Explanation of confidence level

The assigned confidence level for the observation is medium due to the detection of bands, albeit of faint intensity. This determination is rooted in the understanding that band formations typically signify underlying patterns or structures within the observed data. However, the diminished prominence of these bands raises certain uncertainties, thereby warranting a moderate confidence level. In order to enhance the academic tone, it is important to emphasize the empirical evidence of the observed bands while acknowledging the limitations imposed by their faint appearance, ultimately leading to the medium confidence rating. DNA concentration being less then optimal may have also led to above results.
