The National Bee Diagnostic Centre, Goals.

why we developed the National Bee Diagnostic Centre (want to better understand the pests, pathogens and parasites that are killing the  bees) – what it does (specialized diagnostics) – how it reached capacity in year 3 (major applied research project and partnerships with beekeeping industry, government and University scientists) and how we are expanding it into a National Centre of Excellence for Bees (partnering with AAFC Beaverlodge)…which we think will enable Canada to take its place in the International Beekeeping community (i.e. international recognition).
