Project Description

Over the past 50 years millions of honeybee colonies have been killed by the world-wide spread of the Varroa mite that sucks the blood of the honeybee and also transmits viral pathogens. However, a small number of isolated honeybee populations, both managed and feral have evolved to tolerate the presence of the mite and viral pathogens. The aim of the project is to help understand the mite/viral tolerant mechanism in this populations.
