Extensive intra-phylotype diversity in lactobacilli and bifidobacteria from the honeybee gut.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
In the honeybee Apis mellifera, the bacterial gut community is consistently colonized by eight distinct phylotypes of bacteria. Managed bee colonies are of considerable economic interest and it is therefore important to elucidate the diversity and role of this microbiota in the honeybee. In this study, we have sequenced the genomes of eleven strains of lactobacilli and eria isolated from the honey crop of the honeybee A. mellifera.
