Entomology: The Scientist

Gene Robinson, professor of integrative biology, entomology, and cell and developmental biology, comments on the importance of findings reported by an article published this week in Public Library of Science Biology. According to the article, "a gene involved in egg production also helps honeybees exhibit some crucial social behaviors that distinguish them from solitary insects. 'This technique promises to be extremely helpful in identifying the no-doubt many other genes involved in regulating division of labor,' Robinson predicted."
