This 4 minute piece is a parody written to the song "but first let me take a selfie" by the Chainsmokers. The video shows scifies of female plant and animal breeders from around the world emphasizing the important role women play in this field - both historically and at the current time - and also emphasizing the passion these women have for science, their careers and their family lives.  Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam from UC-Davis produced the video that was first debuted at the opening session of the International Plant and Animal Genome Meeting on January 10, 2016.
