Research Project: Hymenopteran Stress Physiology

Location: Insect Genetics and Biochemistry Research

Project Number: 3060-21000-041-05-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2017
End Date: Dec 31, 2019

Objective:
The objectives for this research are to conduct genome sequencing and assembly for the blue orchard bee, conduct transcriptomic analysis on the alfalfa leafcutting bee, and to provide material for the development of germplasm storage technologies for the honeybee.

Approach:
The USDA-ARS will provide materials, research space, and computational resources for the project. The collaborator will provide expertise in bioinformatics (including genome assembly and transcriptomic analysis) and will maintain honeybee colonies for use in storage technology development.
