Honey bee gene targeting offers system to understand food-related behavior
Date:7/25/2013

r for honey bee social behavior," said Wang. A honey bee's sensitivity to sugar predicts the food-choices and timing of foraging.

Wang's experiment opens the door for researchers to build upon her lab's techniques. "We believe our double knockdown approach will be more recognized and shared in the field when it is published in the video journal JoVE," said Wang.

With any luck, the impact will result in more than just high-tech pest control. It could instead provide insight into human insulin pathways, potentially giving us an opportunity to learn how to control human dietary behavior.
