Happy ending of a long-term project

A very long-term project comes finally to a happy ending in the form of a publication. It started with a trip to Borneo with Niko Koeniger, sparking my interest in the Asian honey bees. The genomes of Apis dorsata and Apis florea followed, and now we have them finally analyzed for signatures of selection that might give us some hypotheses about the evolutionary differentiation among the three principal honey bee clades and adaptations that might have occurred during the common evolution of honey bees. I am so glad and want to thank everyone who was involved, including Robert Page who introduced me to Niko!
