Project Title: Importance of spatial structure in influencing the evolution of viral pathogens in honeybees.

Supervisors: Professor Mike Boots, Dr Lena Bayer-Wilfert

Funding Body: NERC

Project Description:
In order to better understand how spatial networks affect viral virulence, and to help combat widespread declines in honeybee populations, I’m undertaking a combination of field, lab and computational studies based on the viruses transmitted by varroa mites between honeybees.

I’m part of a project collaborating with Emory University and University of Georgia in the USA where we are manipulating the spatial structure of populations of honeybee hives and tracking the responses of their pathogens. I’ll be applying genomics and bioinformatics to piece together the evolution of the viruses throughout these manipulations. I’ll also be creating computer simulations in collaboration with Dr Ben Ashby to attempt to predict responses of pathogens to changing population structures, and testing these models against my field and lab data.
