Honey Bee Health Research: Have you ever seen a beetle in a merry-go-round?
In recent years, the small hive beetle (SHB, Aethina tumida), an invasive honey bee (Apis mellifera) pest, has spread to all continents except Antarctica. This beetle can destroy healthy bee colonies within a matter of weeks. In o ...

Memory retention and polyploidy in Nasonia (animal science)
training Nasonia wasps with chocolate and vanilla extract to find hosts and then see if they are attracted to the same to find hosts for parasitization. Compare olfactory genes after to see why the different olfactory lines are di ...

What is necessary to send an insect to Mars? Can we pause life so it survives the year-long journey? biotechnology and bioinformatics thesis
Diapause is an amazing adaptation to survive harsh weather conditions. We will perform experiments to artificially induce diapause and compare the differences among different neopolyploids. We will also see the transcriptome for d ...

Improving crop growth and resistance, using the waste-stream from insect production.
The fast growing global human population requires a large increase in the efficiency of our food production systems. This efficiency can be increased by recycling biowaste from crop production systems through bioconversion by inse ...

Caterpillar-Parasitoid Interaction: how caterpillars identify dangers and avoid natural enemies?
Perceiving environmental info-chemicals and behaving accordingly are very fundamental requirements for insects to survive and establish population in nature. Therefore, olfaction plays essential roles in recognizing various chemic ...

LED's make it resilient: Direct effects of the Red to Far-red light ratio on the behavior of caterpillars
The ratio between red and far-red (R:FR) light is an important environmental signal for plants. Red light is absorbed for photosynthesis while far-red light is reflected. A low R:FR therefore indicates the presences of neighboring ...

LED's make it resilient: The effects of light color on the attraction of biological control agents
Plants can detect their neighbors through changes in light quality, especially the red to far-red light ratio (R:FR). Red light is absorbed by plants for photosynthesis while far-red light is reflected. A low R:FR therefore signal ...

Volatile communication between plants
As a response to insect herbivory, plants emit volatile compounds. These compounds serve as a cry for help for the plant because they attract the natural enemies of the insect herbivores. Neighbour plants have also been shown to r ...
