 Event presented in conjunction with the College of the Rockies

This upcoming public talk will be taking place at the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook on Wednesday, March 4th. This free event hosted by Genome BC will offer attendees an evening of enlightenment with Dr. Leonard Foster, Associate Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, UBC, about genomics and various interesting aspects of bee biology. Bees epitomize hard work and if it weren't for bees we would have a very bland diet indeed. Bees have been domesticated for thousands of years and humans have collected honey from them for even longer but bees importance to us goes far beyond honey: they pollinate a huge variety of crops for us. On top of their importance to agriculture though, bees are just fascinating creatures! In his presentation, Dr. Foster will talk about some of the most interesting aspects of bee biology, what threats bees are currently facing and how his research is trying to improve bee health.
