Towards a molecular definition of worker sterility: differential gene expression and reproductive plasticity in honey bees

Thompson, Graham J; Kucharski, Robert; Maleszka, Ryszard; Oldroyd, Benjamin P


We show that differences in the reproductive development of honey bee workers are associated with locus-specific changes to abundance of messenger RNA. Using a cross-fostering field experiment to control for differences related to age and environment, we
