Wolbachia wMel strain delays embryogenesis in Aedes aegypti. Following stimuli, cumulative larval hatching of wild-type (Br and Rock) and Wolbachia-infected (wMelBr) individuals was recorded from 70 to 80 hours after egg laying (HAE), yielding strain-specific non-linear time series, normalized by viability reference indexes (see “Methods” for details). Statistical comparisons point to significant differences between curves (F-test, F(8,208) = 17.79, P < 0.0001), suggesting that wMelBr completes embryogenesis later in time. Data are represented by means (± SEM) of three independent experiments
