Project to detect the genetical code responsible for Varroa Resistant behavior
Detect Varroa Resistant Behaviour
Our research is:
(1) Validation of a gene panel of which the expression levels predict Varroa-resistance with high accuracy;
(2) Identification and validation of genomic variants that are predictive for Varroa-resistance and their use in non-invasive genetic testing.
Our goal is to handover beekeepers the direction so they can breed Varroa Resistant Honeybees.
