    Good evening sir,

    I am a student in Plant biotechnology at Wageningen University with the specialization in plant breeding and pathology and I am looking for an intership (4 months) experience. I like the topic of the project, and I was wondering if there is the chance to do my intership with you starting in April 2015. Looking forward to hear from you.

    Kind regards
    Giulio Cappadona
