Ants, Bees, Genomes & Evolution @ Queen Mary University London

Social insect genomics conference 2011

Many interesting talks and stimulating discussions during Shenzhen’s Social Insect Genomics Conference which coincided with the release of Sanne Nygaard’s Acromyrmex echinatior leaf-cutter ant genome paper showing adaptations linked to fungal farming. More excitement is on its way with next generation sociogenetics projects bubbling up around the world & across the phylogeny!
