Tomato breeders from Sakata visited Genetwister. There were very interesting discussions over ongoing and future projects. Even there was time for a bbq outside GT building and a beer tasting. The master of ceremonies was, of course, Ferry that explained pasionately the countless virtues of Dutch beer that were confirmed during the corresponding tasting.
