I have no doubt that researchers will “bee” having a great time on BeeBase, an excellent website for the bee scientific community. On this site one will find genomic sequences galore—in addition to the more common Apis mellifera genome, the site also hosts the genomes for three mellifera pathogens as well as for two other bee species (Bombus terrestris and Bombus impatiens). Additionally, two other species’ genomes will be incorporated soon. The “tools” section of the site includes genome browsers and BLAST resources, while the “Beebase wiki” page provides site visitors with not only an introduction to the site, but also an interactive resource for the bee research community. Wiki users can post to the discussion board, share research materials, and provide gene annotation data.
