AbstractFull Text

Insects perfectly fit the flagship principle of animal research - 3R: to reduce (the number of animals), to replace (animals with alternative models) and to refine (methods). Bees have the most important advantages of a model organism: they cause minimal ethical controversy, they have a small and...

Abstract

A simple and sensitive electrochemical method was developed for ampicillin detection based on the protective effect of aptamer-antibiotic conjugate towards endonuclease DpnII activity. Without ampicillin, DNA aptamer firstly hybridizes with the capture probe to form double strand DNA (dsDNA)...

Abstract

Wireless in-hive sensor networks show promise in apiary management and research. However, radio frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by wireless technologies could affect honeybees at the individual and the colony level. Prior research has noted that different operation frequencies...
