Clonal Genomics in Grapevine

Project Info

Grapevine cultivars (Vitis vinifera ssp. L.) are selected superior genotypes of ancient origin. Each cultivar expresses distinct phenotypes, resulting in sets of morphologically and genetically different clones. These clones have spread worldwide adjusting to different environments and cultivation techniques. The causes for clonal variation within woody perennials mainly rely on mutations.

Our research is conducted by two groups: Clonal Genomics [Dr. A. Forneck] and Stress Mechanisms in Grapevine [Dr. U. Anhalt].
