WP2 Innovative Breeding Strategy is ready to go!

At the BeeGuards meeting in Bilbao in few days, the Research Protocol will be presented and practiced.

Under UKIM’s lead, the Work Package partners developed a detailed and comprehensive protocol for executing complex field studies addressing an innovative breeding approach to achieve resilient beekeeping. The protocol aims to standardize the novel methodology for implementation of the breeding cycle, data collection and mating control in programs for genetic improvement and conservation of honey bee populations. In addition, the guidelines pave the way towards creating honey bee germplasm repositories across Europe and developing new technologies for honey bee embryo cryopreservation. Now, UKIM, CREA, BSOURSES, INHORT, LIB, LLH and UNIZAR are ready to explore the Horizons
