Honey bee is one of the most important insects considering its role in agriculture,ecology and economy as a whole. [...] Key Method During May to September 2014, 108 young worker honey bees were collected from six different populations in 30 different geoclimatic locations from Golestan, Mazendaran, Guilan, West Azerbaijan, East Azerbaijan, Ardebil provinces of Iran. DNA was extracted from the worker honey bees. The quality and quantity of extracted DNA were measured.Expand
Genetic Variation in Iranian Honey bees, Apis mellifera meda Skorikow, 1829, (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Inferred from PCR-RFLP Analysis of two mtDNA Gene Segments (COI and 16S rDNA)
TLDR
3 novel composite genotypes (haplotypes) were found in Iranian honey bee populations, which is very useful for the control of conservation of local honey bees, as the movement of colonies across the border line of these neighboring countries, may affect the genetic structure of honey bees populations.

GENETIC DIVERSITY OF HONEYBEE (APIS MELLIFERA ADANSONII) IN IJEBU ENVIRONAS REVEALED BY SIMPLE SEQUENCE REPEAT (SSR) MARKERS
TLDR
Honeybee Apis mellifera adansonii, dominant honey producing species in Nigeria was subjected to genetic variability studies using Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) in other to provide the baseline data in Nigeria and genetic variations existed amongst the honey worker bees populations in Ogun State. Expand
Discrimination of Iranian honeybee populations (Apis mellifera meda) from commercial subspecies of Apis mellifera L. using morphometric and genetic methods
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree of part of the tRNAleu gene, an intergenic region and part of COII differentiated the commercial subspecies from Iranian honeybee populations. Expand
Genetic diversity of the Dwarf honeybee (Apis florea Fabricius, 1787) populations based on microsatellite markers.
TLDR
Evaluating the genetic diversity of Apis florea honeybee from 48 nests (colonies) using microsatellite markers in the South of Iran showed two distinct clusters including a) Minab region samples and b) Bandar Abbas, Bandar Khamir and Qeshm Island regions, having varied vegetation and climate conditions. Expand
Population genetic structure of native Iranian population of Apis mellifera meda based on intergenic region and COX2 gene of mtDNA
Abstract The role of honeybees is demonstrated in pollination and increasing crop production. The two factors, migration and importation of queens, affect biodiversity of honeybee populations.Expand
Evaluation of the efficacy of mitochondrial ATP 6 and 8, Cyt b and 16S rDNA genes for differentiation of Iranian honeybees (Apis mellifera meda) from commercial subspecies of Apis mellifera L. and comparison with geometric morphometric method
TLDR
16S rDNA (Mitochondrial 16S r DNA Region) showed greater ability in differentiating Iranian honeybees from other subspecies compared with ATP 6 and 8 and Cyt b. Expand
Assessment of genetic diversity and differentiation of Liposcelis bostrychophila (Psocoptera: Liposcelidae) in China using inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) fingerprinting
TLDR
Cluster analysis showed that genotypes isolated from the same locations displayed higher genetic similarity and permitted the grouping of isolates of L. bostrychophila into three distinct clusters. Expand
Wide dispersion of B chromosomes in Rhammatocerus brasiliensis (Orthoptera, Acrididae)
TLDR
B-chromosome occurrence in populations of R. brasiliensis possibly follows the population genetic structure of the species and, owing to the existence of a variant, its origin may not be recent. Expand
Correction to: Genetic characteristics of the Iranian honey bee, Apis mellifera meda, based on mitochondrial genes of ND4, ND4L and ND6 and their internal transcribed spacers
TLDR
While typesetting the article Table column head has been incorrectly published, the article's contents have been incorrectly described. Expand
Genetic characteristics of the Iranian honey bee, Apis mellifera meda, based on mitochondrial genes of ND4, ND4L and ND6 and their internal transcribed spacers
Honey bees are one of the most important social insects in the world. Genetic markers are powerful tools for differentiating honey bee subspecies. The purpose of the present research was theExpand

Application of ISSR to study the genetic diversity of honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) populations in some areas of Iran
Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) molecular marker for the isolation of five races of honey bee Apis mellifera from Khuzestan, Kurdistan, Markazi, Fars and Isfahan provinces was studied. DNA wasExpand
Genetic variability in mite-resistant honey bee usi ng ISSR molecular markers
TLDR
The dendrogram demonstrated clearly the ability of the ISSR marker technique to detect the genetic variability among and within the honey bee colonies used in this study. Expand
Microsatellite genetic diversity of Apis melliferameda skorikov
TLDR
The results of current research confirmed the previous findings concerning morphological and biochemical indications of uniformity in the honey bee population of the south Iran in spite of the fact that the cities which was studied by us separated from each other by a distance of 500 km. Expand
Molecular characterization of Turkish honey bee populations (Apis mellifera) inferred from mitochondrial DNA RFLP and sequence results
TLDR
The geographical distribution of some haplotypes suggests that they may be characteristic of subspecies native to Turkey, and a deletion in one of these haplotypes accounts for the novel DraI RFLP pattern. Expand
Morphometric characterization of Iranian (Apis mellifera meda), Central Anatolian (Apis mellifera anatoliaca) and Caucasian (Apis mellifera caucasica) honey bee populations
TLDR
The Caucasian honey bee from Posof had the highest values in the hair length on tergite 5, forewing length,Forewing width and hind leg length which separate it from all other groups, andMahalanobis distances confirmed that Caucasian bees were closer to Central Anatolian bees than to Iranian bees. Expand
Genetic characterization of Lithuanian honeybee lines based on ISSR polymorphism
TLDR
The first results from the selection and evaluation of inter-simple sequence repeat markers for the genetic assessment of honeybee lines developed in Lithuania and introduced subspecies appear well differentiated from the A. m. Expand
Turkish honeybees: genetic variation and evidence for a fourth lineage of Apis mellifera mtDNA.
TLDR
A novel mtDNA haplotype with a unique restriction site pattern and noncoding sequence was found among bees from Hatay, in the extreme south near the Syrian border, and may represent a fourth mitochondrial lineage of honeybee mtDNA. Expand
Genetic diversity of the honeybee in Africa: microsatellite and mitochondrial data
TLDR
The use of both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA often display discordant patterns of differentiation in the honeybee is preferable when assessing the phylogeography of Apis mellifera and to determine the taxonomic status of the subspecies. Expand
Conservation of Asian honey bees
TLDR
Long-term decline in honey bee populations may lead to significant changes in the pollinator ecology of these forests, exacerbating the more direct effects of deforestation and wood harvesting on forest health. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variation in the CoxI–CoxII Intergenic Region among Turkish and Iranian Honey Bees (Apis mellifera L.)
TLDR
Length and restriction site polymorphisms within the CoxI–CoxII intergenic region of the honey bee mitochondrial genome have been particularly useful in differentiating evolutionary lineages and groups of subspecies. Expand
