Protocol notes

We followed the project protocol. In our gel image, the top lanes have arthropod primers, and the bottom lanes have wolbachia primers. And my sample is in lane 2.


Wolbachia presence Yes
Confidence level Low
Explanation of confidence level

My confidence level is on the lower side because when analyzing the DNA results. there were streaky bands on the gel, therefore making it difficult to interpret the information.

Wolbachia 16S sequence
Arthropod COI sequence
Summary The Diptera was found to be postive for Wolbachia.
