Kakapo 125 Project - Sandy Baines

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:26 pm on 15 March 2016

The Kakapo 125 project was launched last night. It aims to sequence the genomes of every kakapo in the world. And it's the first time it's been done for an entire species. The project is being undertaken by Genetics Otago and New Zealand Genomics Ltd, with support from the Government. Sandy Baines is the chief operating officer at New Zealand Genomics Ltd.
