Cataglyphis albicans sampling trip

Our lab expanded our phylogenetic scope beyond the Cataglyphis bicolor species group and into the C. albicans sister clade. We went on a two day sampling trip all around the Negev to collect from the various populations/species in this clade. This sample set will guide future work looking into variation in social structure in these populations. Will we find a supergene also there? (potentially the same “social chromosome” of C. niger)
