Gene study boosts bid to keep British bees safe from disease

Efforts to protect the UK's native honey bees could be helped by research that maps their entire genetic make-up. Experts also analysed the genetic profile of bacteria and other organisms that live inside bees, to shed new light on emerging diseases that threaten bee colonies. Researchers say their findings could help to safeguard native bee populations from the effects of infectious diseases...

The Darwin Tree of Life Project

A global effort has been officially launched to sequence all living organisms on Earth including animal, plant, protozoan and fungal species. The project, known as the Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), will generate the largest dataset of its kind from the 1.5 million species of eukaryotes worldwide. EBP will provide new insights into a range of scientific fields including; evolution, biodiversity...
