More on bees

I got a little worked up writing the last bee post and so neglected to mention the avalanche of “bee science” this week.

First up, the oldest known bee fossil, 100 Mya, preserved in amber. This will be reported in Science tomorrow.

My feed reader contains a subscription to GR In Advance, part of the journal Genome Research. It updates so infrequently that I forget that it’s there, but today 13 new articles appeared – every one a bee.

There’s a new issue of Bioinformatics out too. All methods. No bees.
