OREGIN has an ongoing programme aimed at collating information relevant to R&D underpinning genetic improvement of oilseed rape (Brassica napus)
The stakeholder forum, chaired by Mark Nightingale, comprises breeders, sponsors, scientists and "end-users", who represent the substantial majority of UK's expertise relating to oilseed rape genetics and breeding.
The forum aims to promote the activities of OREGIN and elevate its profile.
Details of stakeholder meetings will be updated here so please check back.
