Sampling for the Project resumed after the summer break. In addition to the 26 beekeepers in July, another 16 were joined this time located in northern regions-Lombardy, Liguria, Piedmont, Veneto, and Trentino.

Including the previous 26 we are then at 42 for a total of 117 households sampled.

In the next update we will report on more samples coming soon from Sicily and Apulia.

At that point we can pull the sums of the distribution of the samples we send to sequencing in relation to the different genetic types.
