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.

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)
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 the Dwarf honeybee (Apis florea Fabricius, 1787) populations based on microsatellite markers.
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.
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 the
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.
Genetic variation of yellow pistachio hard scale, Lepidosaphes pistaciae Archangelskaya (Hem.: Diaspididae) populations in Kerman province, Iran revealed by ISSR markers.
The results showed that ISSR markers technique is able to detect the genetic diversity among the yellow Pistachio hard scale populations of various commercial pistachio cultivars within the pistachios orchards, in Kerman, Iran.
A comparative analysis of RAPD and ISSR markers for assessing genetic diversity in Iranian populations of Nigella sativa L.
The results of this research showed that RAPD and ISSR molecular markers can be useful for identifying and classifying the Iranian Nigella sativa L. sativa populations.
The application of DNA molecular markers in the study of Codonopsis species genetic variation, a review.
This review represents the usage of DNA molecular markers for molecular diversity analysis of medically important species belonging to the genus Codonopsis, which were shown to be of great importance in medicine, due to their broad biological activity.

Due to the requirement of melon yield, the cultivated seeds are overused with pesticides during the melon planting process, and the population characteristics are not considered, resulting in serious


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 was
Genetic variability in mite-resistant honey bee usi ng ISSR molecular markers
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.
Microsatellite genetic diversity of Apis melliferameda skorikov
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.
Molecular characterization of Turkish honey bee populations (Apis mellifera) inferred from mitochondrial DNA RFLP and sequence results
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.
Morphometric characterization of Iranian (Apis mellifera meda), Central Anatolian (Apis mellifera anatoliaca) and Caucasian (Apis mellifera caucasica) honey bee populations
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.
Genetic characterization of Lithuanian honeybee lines based on ISSR polymorphism
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.
Turkish honeybees: genetic variation and evidence for a fourth lineage of Apis mellifera mtDNA.
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.
Genetic diversity of the honeybee in Africa: microsatellite and mitochondrial data
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.
Conservation of Asian honey bees
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.
