Spotlight on Research: Shannon Holt on finding immune responsive proteins in the honey bee

Shannon Holt is a PhD candidate whose research focuses on evaluating immune responses in bees.

“My project aims to develop an immune response assay, providing a method for immune competence evaluation. Once completed the molecular markers can be used to study immune response variations, potentially providing a platform for marker-directed breeding of more immune competent bees.”
