While recent advances in analytical techniques have provided insights into what stress factors affect bee health how they may interact, the overall .. Read more picture is murky. Therefore, bridging knowledge and data from the different scientific disciplines like genomics, microbiology, immunology and parasitology is necessary for gaining a complete picture of stress factor effects on honey bee health. Additionally, this mini-symposium plans to serve as an Asian connection platform to inform, develop, and help to curate existing online databases initiated by honey bee health consortium (e.g., the BeeBiome Data Portal) and associations (COLOSS, the organization that studies bee colony losses). By designing new ideas about accessible and interactive online maps (e.g. about presence/absence of specific parasites) which should be used by scientists and beekeepers we want to foster the opportunity to join forces and learn from each other. Taking advantage of OIST recent leadership in the field of bee health we would like to welcome international specialists to Okinawa, following the first initiative which will be held in February 2020 by the COLOSS ASIA. This workshop will leverage the attention gathered by this meeting to promote the need for international collaboration in battling current honey bee health issues and preventing the emergence of future diseases, particularly with a focus on Asia.
