    A Cell Line Resource Derived from Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) Embryonic Tissues We have developed a method incorporating established insect cell culture techniques that supports sustained growth of honey bee cells in vitro. We used honey bee eggs mid to late in their embryogenesis to establish...
