Genetic Characterization of Commercial Honey Bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Populations in the United States by Using Mitochondrial and Microsatellite Markers


Genetic diversity levels within and between the two commercial breeding areas in the United States were analyzed using the DraI restriction fragment length polymorphism of the COICOIImitochondrial region and 10 polymorphicmicrosatellite loci. Thewestern commercial breeding population (WCBP) and the southeastern commercial breeding population (SCBP) were… (More)
