Apis mellifera.png
  • Apis mellifera is the most important managed pollinator species in the world, its pollination services are estimated at contributing $14 billion annually to the economy. Honeybees are critical for agricultural ecosystems, but are exposed to many biotic stressors including bacteria, viruses and fungi. Honey bee is also a highly social insect and represents a key model for social behavior studies. It is also the first hymenopteran insect to have its genome fully sequenced[1][2].
