Thanks for your question, Anthony. Honey bees play a critical role in farming since
they help pollinate a lot of the foods that we eat every day, and we want to do our part to address declines in honey bee populations. We acquired Beeologics because they were working on some really great ideas about developing RNAi, which we talk about in this 2011 news release, and we wanted to help put those ideas into practice. If you're interested in more details about what we're doing on honeybees, you can visit this
