MicroRNAs in Honey Bee Caste Determination

Ashby, Regan; Foret, Sylvain; Searle, Iain; Maleszka, Ryszard


The cellular mechanisms employed by some organisms to produce contrasting morphological and reproductive phenotypes from the same genome remains one of the key unresolved issues in biology. Honeybees (Apis mellifera) use differential feeding and a haplodiploid sex determination system to generate three distinct organismal outcomes from the same genome. Here we investigate the honeybee female and male caste-specific microRNA and transcriptomic molecular signatures during a critical time of...[Show more]
