NGS-based identification of Copy Number Variants (CNVs) in honey bee genome has just started! The international collaboration with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will combine complementary expertise and information resources that will enable the first study of CNVs and associated molecular mechanisms in honey bees. The applied methodology will enable the detection of CNV and candidate genes that could be associated with the pollination capability of honey bees.
