About this book

Language: chapters in either English, or Chinese with bilingual abstracts in English and Chinese

This book contains the following chapters:


I Honeybee Caste Differentiation and Differential Expression of Gene l
1. Diet and cell size both affect queen-worker differentiation through DNA methylation in honey bees (Apis mellifera, Apidae)
2. Genome-wide analysis indicates that queen larvae have lower methylation levels in the honey bee (Apis mellifera)
3. Differentially expressed microRNAs between queen and worker larvae of honey bee (Apis mellifera)
4. Expression of sir2, hdac 1 and ash2 in honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) queens and workers
5. [Chinese] Cloning and expression profiling of the DNA methyltransferase Dnmt3 gene in the Chinese honeybee Apis cerana cerana (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
6. [Chinese] Cloning and developmental expression of dynactin p62 gene in the Chinese honeybee, Apis cerana cerana (Hymenoptera, Apidae)

II. Division of Labour Among Workers
1. A comparison of digital gene expression profiling and methyl DNA immunoprecipitation as methods for gene discovery in honeybee (Apis mellifera) behavioural genomic analyses
2. Behaviour and molecular physiology of nurses of worker and queen larvae ln honey bees (Apis mellifera)
3. Assessment of fiight activity and holning ability in Asian and European honey bee species Apis cerana and Apis mellifera, measured with radlo trequency tags
4. [Chinese] Study on foraging behavior of honeybee Apis mellifera based on RFID technology

III. Genetic and Development of Honeybee
1. Transcriptome analysis of the Asian honey bee Apis cerana
2. Transcriptome difference in hypopharyngeal gland between Western Honeybees (Apis mellifera) and Eastern Honeybees (Apis cerana)
3. A SNP based high-density linkage map of Apis cerana reveals a high recombination rate similar to Apis mellifera
4. Epigenetic modification of gene expression in honey bees by heterospecific gland secretions
5. Changes in alternative splicing in Apis mellifera bees fed Apis cerana royal jelly
6. Nutrition affects longevity and gene expression in honey bee (Apis mellifera) workers
7. Effects of 10-Hydroxy-2-decenoic acid on the development of honeybee (Apis mellifera) larvae
8. Mating flight causes genome-wide transcriptional changes in sexually mature honeybee queens
9. [Chinese] Effect of royal jelly on the DNA methylation of dynactin p62 gene in female honeybee larvae
10. [Chinese] Flight behaviour affects gene expression in matured virgin queens (Apis cerana cerana)
11. [Chinese] The effects of mating flight on sRNAs expression in sexual matured virgin queens (Apis cerana cerana)

IV. Polymorphism Analysis of csd Gene of Honeybee
1.The sex determination gene shows no founder effect in the giant honey bee, Apis dorsata
2. Polymorphism analysis of csd gene in six Apis mellifera subspecies
3. csd alleles in the red dwarf honey bee (Apis florea, Apidae, Hymenoptera) show exceptionally high nucleotide diversity
4. Nucleotide diversity based on csd gene of the black giant honey bee (Hymenoptera, Apidae, A. laboriosa)
5. [Chinese] Polymorphism analysis of csd gene in five populations of chinese honeybee

V. Learning and Memory of Honeybee
1. Comparison of learning and memory of Apis cerana and Apis mellifera
2. Cross-modal learning between visual and olfactory in Apis cerana
3. Gene expression analysis following olfactory learning in Apis megava
4. The integrative analysis of microRNA and mRNA expression in Apis mellifera following maze-based visual pattern learning

VI. Worker Policing, Discrimination and Nepotism
1. Does the queen mark pheromone in the wall of the cell?
2. Decision making plasticity of swarming honeybees (Apis cerana cerana)
3. [Chinese] Study on the worker policing in Apis cerana cerana based on microsatellite DNA
4. [Chinese] A preliminary study on the ultrastructure and chemical components of egg surface of the chinese honeybee, Apis ceran cerana
5. [Chinese] Worker nepotism during emergency queen-cell building in Chinese honeybee (Apis cerana cerana)
6. [Chinese] Identification of brood pheromone in chinese honeybee, Apis cerana cerana (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
7. [Chinese] Effects of three aliphatic esters of brood pheromone on development and foraging behavior of Apis cerana workers
8. [Chinese] Effects of three aliphatic esters of brood pheromone on worker feeding and capping behavior and queen development of A. cerana and A.mellifera ligustica
