American Bee Research Conference

As always, the ABRC meeting was exciting and informative! Amazing plenary talks, but all presentations were great. Glad our group contributed three of them, with Kaira reporting on her new testing of hygienic behavior assays, Esmaeil describing his newest virus experiment to study queen immunity, and Bin Han as lead author on the presentation of his identification of the neuropeptide tachykinin as general regulator of the degree of behavioral specialization in honey bee workers.
