Event description

Description

Deformed wing virus: how do vector transmitted RNA viruses contribute to the death of honey bees?

Our special guest tonight is University of Sydney PhD Candidate, Amanda Norton. Amanda's background is in chemical ecology and she has been fascinated with honey bees since childhood. Her research investigates the relationship between honey bees (Apis mellifera), viruses and Varroa mites. Deformed Wing Virus (DWV) is currently considered to be the most significant honey bee virus worldwide.

The overall aim of Amanda's research is to uncover the relationship between Varroa and DWV, and determine how Varroa affects DWV virulence and mechanisms of resistance in honey bees. Her project also aims to determine what effect Varroa and DWV will have upon Australia’s naïve honey bees and contribute knowledge to a continuity strategy, should Varroa and DWV become established in Australia.

We look forward to seeing you there!
