Abstract: 

During the Feed-a-Gene stakeholder meeting held at the EAAP annual meeting in Tallinn (August 2017), a series of 10 interviews of researchers associated with the project was filmed. In this third episode, Ludovic Brossard presents the approach of Feed-a-Gene's fourth Work Package. In episodes 4-9 (to be released in the following weeks), work package leaders and researchers will present the other Work Packages and the results obtained so far. In the season finale, Jaap van Milgen will talk about the importance of stakeholders and about their feedback and input on the project.
