Scottish Beekeepers Association - Another species of Varroa mite threatens European honey bees - Scottish Beekeepers Association

While host-switching V. jacobsoni mites have not been found outside of Papua New Guinea, Purdue researchers Gladys Andino and Greg Hunt say vigilance is needed to protect European honeybees worldwide from further risk.
"This could represent a real threat," said Andino, a bioinformatics specialist with Information Technology at Purdue. To gain insight into the biology behind V. jacobsoni's host switch, Andino and Hunt, professor of behavioral genetics and honeybee specialist, studied the differences in gene expression between V. jacobsoni mites that fed and reproduced on Asian honeybees and those that parasitized European honeybees. "If we can understand the mechanism, we might be able to disrupt, block or manipulate that," Andino said. "But first we have to understand what is happening and which genes are involved in allowing the mites to shift to a new host." Andino and Hunt sequenced and assembled the first V. jacobsoni transcriptome, a catalog of all of the proteins made by an organism that shows which genes are actively being expressed. Many of these genes were related to stress responses, "which makes sense," Andino said. Andino and Hunt said the mites' leap to European honeybees likely occurred within the last decade. Gladys K.

Gladys K. Andino, Purdue University - Promoting Diversity in HPC at Purdue University
Poster Author: Gladys K. Andino, Purdue University Gladys is currently a Senior Scientific Applications Analyst in Research Computing at Purdue University. While providing computing expertise to students, staff and faculty with her advanced knowledge of bioinformatics software, analysis, and pipelines, she also provides instruction related to Unix and HPC - both in standalone workshops and as a lecturer in academic courses. With other female members of the Research Computing team, she founded the first Purdue's Women in HPC program. Gladys actively participates with student-mentor programs at Purdue as well as in academic and professional conferences. In addition, she serves as editor for a peer- reviewed journal in her research field. An entomologist by training, her doctoral work integrated computational bioinformatics and high-performance computing techniques from the ground up.
