The objective of this work is to develop novel Single Cell Protein (SCP) diets for honey bees as a vector for feed-based therapeutics that will improve resistance to viral and microbial pathogens as well as parasitic Varroa mites.
Expanding on our efforts to improve honey bee health via breeding and genetics, we will develop feed-based gene therapies to improve resistance to viral and microbial pathogens as well as parasitic Varroa mites.
