Dr. Olav Rueppell's Research Featured on UNCG 'Inspire. Change.' Website

UNCG Biology associate professor, Dr. Olav Rueppell's, research was recently featured on the UNCG 'Inspire. Change.' Website. Dr. Rueppell uses honey bees as the model to delve into the intracies of social evolution.

"In my research, I try to explain the reasons and mechanisms of honeybees' social evolution," he says. "Compared to other animals, they have an added layer of complexity to cooperate and share a common goal in the colony. But they do different tasks. How is it that one worker does one task and another does another task? Those are the questions I'm trying to answer at the genetic, genomic and individual level."

Congratulations Dr. Rueppell!
