Thesis: Plasticity in honeybee sperm metabolism

I am investigating the metabolism of honeybee sperm, and how this may change during storage in the queen bee. I am also looking at oxidative stress and protein synthesis during storage.

Why my research is important

Potential outcomes for improving sperm fitness, as well as improved storage of sperm
