The honey bee disease symptoms of these fungal pathogens are described and research methodologies and protocols for isolating and culturing, in vivo and in vitro assays that are commonly used to study these host pathogen interactions are provided.
Microbial Gut Diversity of Africanized and European Honey Bee Larval Instars
It is shown that the larval gut is colonized by a handful of bacterial groups previously described from guts of adult honey bees or other pollinators, and early inoculation by Acetobacteraceae may be important for microbial succession in larvae.
Genetic Variation in Virulence among Chalkbrood Strains Infecting Honeybees
Larvae from one colony showed significantly higher susceptibility to chalkbrood infection than larvae from the other two colonies, confirming the existence of genetic variation in susceptibility across colonies, and suggesting that beekeeping industries would benefit from more systematic monitoring of this chronic stress factor of their colonies.

Use of above-mentioned contemporary techniques makes it possible to assess and monitor the dynamics of immune reconstitution especially reconstitutes of T-cell diversity, thymic function and antigen-specific T- cell response following HSCT.
Temperature dependent virulence of obligate and facultative fungal pathogens of honeybee brood.

The prevalence of anti-HEV IgG among blood donors as representatives of the general population is quite high in Serbia compared to data from many European countries, which could be the high prevalence of HEV among Serbian pigs and the traditional consumption of piglet meat in the country.
The transcriptomic and evolutionary signature of social interactions regulating honey bee caste development
Estimated selection coefficients suggest that both nurse and larval genes putatively associated with caste are rapidly evolving, especially those genes associated with worker development.
Mixed infections reveal virulence differences between host-specific bee pathogens.
Queen presence mediates the relationship between collective behaviour and disease susceptibility in ant colonies

It is found that queenright subcolonies outperformed their queenless counterparts in nearly all collective behaviours and interactions between workers and brood are integral to colonies survival, suggesting that a social group's history of social reorganization may have strong consequences on their collective behaviors and their vulnerability to disease outbreaks.
