Population Structure and Diversity in European Honey Bees (Apis mellifera L.) – An Empirical Comparison of Pool and Individual Whole-Genome Sequencing

Background: Whole-genome sequencing has become routine for population genetic studies. Sequencing of individuals provides maximal data but is rather expensive and fewer samples can be studied. In contrast, sequencing a pool of samples (pool-seq) can provide sufficient data, while presenting less of an economic challenge. Few studies have compared the two approaches to infer population…
