E-MEXP-699 - Transcription profiling of brains from anarchist and wild-type honeybee strains to investigate ovary activation

Status
Released on 1 October 2006, last updated on 2 May 2014
Organism
Apis mellifera
Samples (40)
Array (1)
Protocols (5)
Description
Effect of genotype (wildtype vs. anarchist) on gene expression in developing (four-day-old) honeybee worker brains. Goal of experiment is to identify genes associated with ovary activation during worker development. These genes are hypothesised to be candidates for the regulation of worker sterility.
Experiment types
transcription profiling by array, individual genetic characteristics
