Small Cell Research
« on: February 05, 2007, 10:25:49 PM »
well just wanted to let anyone that was wondering about small cell research know that I know for a fact the University of Georgia is starting its first year of studying small cell, Bill Owens (Billy Bob on Beesource) donated about 50 hives  (I think that the right number but will find out for sure soon) that are already regressed, now they will have 2 studies going, resistant bee's and small cell....... I am curious what they will find out because they have hives surviving that is on regular cells but its good for them to study small cell....... I get to go a few time's this year as a volunteer at UGA

that's super.  I'd like to know the results of a good study.  do you know how long they intend it to last?  i assume they are running controls along  with the resistant and small cell?
