DNA methylation changes elicited by social stimuli in the brains of worker honey bees

Lockett, Gabrielle; Kucharski, Robert; Maleszka, Ryszard


Social environments are notoriously multifactorial, yet studies in rodents have suggested that single variables such as maternal care can in fact be disentangled and correlated with specific DNA methylation changes. This study assesses whether non-detrimental social environmental variation in a highly plastic social insect is correlated with epigenomic modifications at the DNA methylation level. Honey bee workers perform tasks such as nursing and foraging in response to the social environment...[Show more]
