Stage M2 : Validation des protocoles de test de résistance de l’abeille au parasite varroa

L’acarien Varroa destructor est l’un des principaux parasites de l’abeille domestique Apis mellifera, causant d’importantes pertes de colonies à l’échelle mondiale dû à une relation hôte-parasite déséquilibrée. Certaines colonies d’abeilles ont cependant développé des stratégies de défense naturelle face au parasite, ce qui leur permet de survivre à l’acarien. Plusieurs mécanismes de défense ont été […]
