New study: DNA methylation in memory specificity and relearning

Over the last years one of our aims was to characterise the role DNA methylation plays in honeybee memory formation. There is still much we don’t know, but our newest study (Biergans et al., 2016)┬ácould identify two distinct functions of DNA methylation in bees: memory specificity and relearning. During olfactory reward learning (the assay we … More New study: DNA methylation in memory specificity and relearning
