Scope of Workshop:

Up to the moment, two different microsporidia species have been shown to infect Apis mellifera: Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae. While the disease due to N. apis has been widely studied, those due to N. ceranae only has been studied in the last four years. Due to the recent description of this last agent, there are several question about the epidemiology, pathology, diagnostic and control that have to bee answered. The workshopNosema disease: lack of knowledge and work standardization” has been designed to put all the knowledge together and to standardize some specific aspects for researching. The workshop goal will be to answer the most of questions that the researchers have nowadays or to determine how that questions could be studied to get answered. With this objective, all the COLOSS member will be asked for questions that feel have to be answered in an open call (even in the case they are not interested to join to the workshop). Questions will be grouped by topic and speakers will describe what it is know and unknown in every topic and a discussion will be made afterwards.
