What have we been up to? (APR 2016)
It’s been a busy spring thus far, and things are only just beginning! Carl successfully passed his oral exams and has now advanced to candidacy, which means he is now down the home stretch in writing up his three thesis chapters. James has launched into a new research project on queen reproductive quality and the shipping of packaged queens. Hongmei continues to makes strides in her research projects on the bioinformatics of IAPV and new genomic tools. Parry, who only joined our program in November, has been making great headway into the BIP virus project by re-running all ~2,400 colony samples for better genetic information as well as analyzing the complex dataset. Hannah has done a fantastic job in coordinating all of the 18 different research stations across the state in their planting of pollinator habitats and is just now starting to collect samples from the field. Jennifer has been keeping busy in colony splits to keep ahead of the swarming season, and in doing so has already doubled our overwintered population. That means we’re ready for summer!
