Honey bees face numerous biotic threats from viruses to bacteria, fungi, protists, and mites.

Turkey is one of the World's most important centers of apiculture, harboring five subspecies of Apis mellifera L., approximately 20% of the honey bee subspecies in the world. We use deep ILLUMINA-based RNA sequencing to capture RNA species for the… CONTINUE READING
