Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level Low
Explanation of confidence level

There is low confidence because the gel was run two times and both times both the control and the samples were not visible. However, the ladder showed, but was very faint. With so many different possible sources of errors, maybe everything was not mixed properly or from human errors.
