Caption: Fungal infection in bees. Close-up of worker bees (Apis sp.) removing the mummified remains (centre right) of larvae infected by the chalk brood fungus (Ascosphaera apis). This infection kills affected bees, giving their bodies a chalky white appearance. Scientists from the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) are using the completed bee genome to help understand bee responses to this disease.
