About This Project

The honey bee is a charismatic species that plays a critical role in the pollination of agriculturally important crops and native flora. One emerging field of research is that of the host-associated honey bee microbiome, a group of bacterial phylotypes that are consistently found within the honey bee and are thought to play critical roles such as protection from pathogens and nutrient acquisition. As part of this project, we will investigate how these microbes communicate with each other.
