Important species, trait, etc. These should be the first things you go after.
11
Species or traits I'm personally targeting in my current playthrough.
12
Species or traits I've personally aquired by not yet captured the genes in my current playthrough.
13
Species or traits that I've aquired in my current playthrough. Genes captured and stored, but not templated.
14
Species or traits that I've aquired in my current playthrough. Genes captured, templated, and put in gene bank.

Getting Started
18
Begin by playing Pokemon, catching all dem wild beez! Keep Pristine and Ignoble princesses, but store away Ignobles for use later.
19
Scoops are required to get bees from hives. Manasteel scoop / aura ring / ring of mana is useful if you have access to low tier botania.
20
Quaries (like the digital miner) can also get you bees, silk touch will give you hives.
21
Get a farm online with pumpkins which are a great source of early seed oil.
22
Build 2 squeezers (seed oil, honey), 3 carpenters (seed oil, honey, water). Alternatively can be done with 1 of each and pipes / tanks.
23
Use Honey Drops in the Beealyzer / sqeeze Honey Dew for liquid Honey to make Alvearies.
24
Apiarist's Chest / Apiarist's Backpack are useful bee storage.
25
26
You can start by creating a beehouse or stealing apiaries from villages.
27
Bees in a beehouse cannot mutate. Bees in an apiary or alveary can mutate to a new species.
28
Bees in an apiary with 3 frames run at 70%-90% speed.
29
Bees in a bee house run at 25% speed.
30
Bees in an apiary with 0 frames run at 10% speed.
31
Bees in an alveary with 3-4 frames run at top speed. 500% - 1600% depending on the bee in question.
32
Beens in an alveary or industrial apiary can have their climate adjusted.
33
Bees in an industrial apiary will get you near max production when upgraded.
34
If you are power starved, magic apiaries are the best non-powerd apiaries. They are better than base industrial apiaries.
35
36
Misc, mod specific tips
37
If the pack has Botania, an assembly Halo will help crafting frames.
38
If you have a way to mass chop trees, the redwood forest is a great source of lots of wood fast.
39
If the pack has Botania, don't throw away unwanted drones in the trash, use Beegonias to burn those drones into mana.
40
41
Automation with Ender IO Item Conduits
42
Does not work with beehouses
43
Setup an Apiary / Alviary / Industrial Apiary with a single item conduit on a side
44
Set the setting to In / Out, on the Extract seeting, set to Always Active and Self Feed Enabled.
45
Initially it helps if you just slap a single one ontop of an apiary to reinsert for you.
46
You can create a grid of them and then extend to a chest to dump product into a storage network.
47
Try creating a Conduit Facade, put a level on the block, then set to Active with Signal
48
49
Early Bee Progression
50
Plant yourself a garden in your "lab" which has one of every plant you will need throughout bee progression.
51
SOULFRAMES ARE YOUR FRIEND. USE THEM.
52
The Escritoire is also your friend. It not only gets you extra combs if you play the mini game right, but helps you breed faster.
53
Breed and Spam Cultivated for honey / honeydew. Use honey for Beealizer, use Honeydew for Squeezing honey.
54
Breed any princess with ~6-8 drones of any species to modify the princess to become that species.
55
Breed Imperial and Industrious bees. Pollen and Royal Jelly are needed for making Alvearies.
56
Common > Noble > Majestic > Imperial
57
Common > Diligent > Unweary > Industrious
58
Breed Arcane and Supernatural Bees to get Unusual Pollen / Enchanting Drops which are needeed to make Magic Apiaries
59
Eldritch > Esoteric > Mysterious > Arcane
60
Eldritch > Charmed > Enchanted > Supernatural
61
62
To Infinity and Beyond! (specific to FTB Infinity)
63
Gendustry is blocked until you get to the Infinity bee. So getting there requires you to breed naturally.
64
Build an Alviary which will help near garuntee perfect mutations of princess / drones.
65
Alviaries are technically not necissary but HIGHLY recommended because you have single fertility or rare bees you are working with.
66
If you want to progress without an Alviary, find a Plains or other Normal / Normal Biomes next to a Desert / Savana with Hot / Arid.
67
Build an Alviary with 1 Mutator (Ender Pearl / Eye of Ender), 6 Frame Housing (Soul Frames), 2 Heaters, 2 Hydro Regulators.
68
Heaters require power, but only plug them in when breeding Silicon bee if using a Skystone princess.
69
Hydro Regulators require water / lava, but only use when needed like when having a Skystone queen use 2 Lava to heat things up
70
Valiant > Excited > Energetic
71
Ferrous > Skystone > Silicon > Infinity
72
Break down allmost every thing you have at this point. Keep an imperial or two online for jelly / honey / honeydew.
73
Automate that Infinity bee to make power modules. Congratz, you've "beaten" the bee game, the rest is downhill / fun from here.
74
75
Gendustry
76
Lab setup requires 6 power modules (7 for the advanced mutatron).
77
Genetic Sampler, setup so bees / blank gene samples, labware are inserted and new gene samples are pulled out to a chest.
78
Furnace of some kind which can be setup on a level to pull unwanted gene samples from the dump chest and make them blank again.
79
Mutagen Producer, connect with a pipe to the Advanced Mutatron (don't bother with regular one). Setup so labware is inserted.
80
Genetic Transposer, setup so labware / blank gene samples / templates are inserted and processed items are pulled out to a chest.
81
Genetic Imprinter, setup so labware / bees are inserted and processed bees are pulled out to a chest.
82
Use sampler to get the genes the traits (see Traits Tab) and species from bees
83
Use Transposer to duplicate new genes and use one of the genes to create a template with the single trait.
84
Always keep 1 copy of the gene and 1 template of every gene in your "gene bank". This will allow you to change bees at will.
85
Make an Ultimate Breeder template and Ultimate Production template.
86
Make sure to craft an Apiarist suit before breeding any deadly bees. The Exotic bee is on the way to Edenic (Explorer Effect).
87
WARNING: Vindicttive, Vengeful, Avenging bees! Breed enough of them outside your base to get effect, then remove effect.
88
89
Work toward ultimate traits, the sooner you do this the better. This list will vary largely based on pack and bees available.
90
Bees that will get you there: Rocky, Majestic, Edenic, Doctoral, Aear
