Feed-a-Gene Season 1 Episode 1: Jaap van Milgen talks about the rationale and goals of the project

During the Feed-a-Gene stakeholder meeting held during the EAAP in Tallinn (August 2017), we filmed a series of 9 video interviews of researchers associated with the project. In Episode 1, coordinator Jaap van Milgen discusses the rationale, goals and expected impacts of the project. In episodes 2-8 (to be released in the following weeks), work package leaders and researchers will present ongoing scientific activities and the results obtained so far. In the season finale, Jaap van Milgen will conclude about the current state of the project.
