The Adventure Begins
First, choose a number between 1 and 26 and then scroll down to meet your bee!
Here are the gel images after running a PCR on your bees using the forward primer "BeeF" and the reverse primer "BeeR" to amplify the DNA barcoding region of the cytochrome oxidase 1 (COI) gene. We are sending the PCR products off for sequencing now and will share the resulting raw data with you soon! We are keeping our fingers crossed for good results - you never know if the sequencing step is going to work or not!
