. The genomes of two key bumblebee species with primitive eusocial organization. Genome Biol. 2015;16:76 pubmed publisher
..Overall, gene repertoires suggest that the route to advanced eusociality in bees was mediated by many small changes in many genes and processes, and not by notable expansion or depauperation. ..
