Table 2 DENV-2 infection rates (%) for replicate B tissues of w Mel.F and Wildtype mosquitoes

From: Effect of repeat human blood feeding on Wolbachia density and dengue virus infection in Aedes aegypti

Blood feeding status Salivary glands infections (N) Midguts infections (N) Body infections (N)
w Mel.F Wildtype w Mel.F Wildtype w Mel.F Wildtype
