Background: The honeybee (Apis mellifera) has been used with great success in a variety of
behavioral studies. The lack of genomic tools in this species has, however, hampered efforts to
provide genome-based explanations for behavioral data. We have combined the power of DNA
arrays and the availability of distinct behavioral stages in honeybees to explore the dynamics of
gene expression during adult development in this insect. In addition, we used caffeine treatment, a
procedure that...[Show more]
