    A Comparison of Digital Gene Expression Profiling and Methyl DNA Immunoprecipitation as Methods for Gene Discovery in Honeybee (Apis mellifera) Behavioral Genomic Analyses The honey bee has a well-organized system of division of labor among workers. Workers typically progress through a series of...

    A Strong Immune Response in Young Adult Honeybees Masks Their Increased Susceptibility to Infection Compared to Older Bees Forager bees treated with the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae s.l. survived for significantly longer than house bees. More immune genes were up regulated in...

    Host Generated siRNAs Attenuate Expression of Serine Protease Gene in Myzus persicae Beneficial pollinators viz. Pieris rapae and Mamestra configurata occur on members of the family Brassicaceae while Apis mellifera on Asteraceae members along-with M. persicae. It is presumed that siRNAs may be...
