This chapter presents the use of transcriptomic data in hypothesis-driven research in order to determine the effects of infections, pests and pathogens on honey bee ( Apis mellifera ) health. It also highlights the importance of transcriptomics in understanding and preventing various phenomena, such as colony collapse disorder and colony loss, in order to improve both honey bee and wild bee populations.
