Most beekeepers know that queen quality, foraging performance, overwintering ability, disease resistance and hygienic behaviour are vitally important for successful beekeeping. This Special Issue helps to refine the parameters by explaining how these qualities can be assessed, empowering the beekeeper to improve stocks and select appropriate characters for enhancement in any breeding programme. The basic chemistry of genes is explained, illustrating how this chemistry unfolds in the cells and reproductive organs of the honey bee. This is a useful aid if you are studying for the module exams.
