Phased diploid genome assembly with single-molecule real-time sequencing
While genome assembly projects have been successful in many haploid and inbred species, the assembly of noninbred or rearranged heterozygous genomes remains a major challenge. To address thisExpand

Transcriptomic and metabolite analyses of Cabernet Sauvignon grape berry development
BackgroundGrape berry development is a dynamic process that involves a complex series of molecular genetic and biochemical changes divided into three major phases. During initial berry growth (PhaseExpand

Effects of abiotic stress on plants: a systems biology perspective
The natural environment for plants is composed of a complex set of abiotic stresses and biotic stresses. Plant responses to these stresses are equally complex. Systems biology approaches facilitate aExpand

Water and salinity stress in grapevines: early and late changes in transcript and metabolite profiles
Grapes are grown in semiarid environments, where drought and salinity are common problems. Microarray transcript profiling, quantitative reverse transcription-PCR, and metabolite profiling were usedExpand

Phased Diploid Genome Assembly with Single Molecule Real-Time Sequencing
While genome assembly projects have been successful in a number of haploid or inbred species, one of the current main challenges is assembling non-inbred or rearranged heterozygous genomes. ToExpand

Water deficit alters differentially metabolic pathways affecting important flavor and quality traits in grape berries of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay
BackgroundWater deficit has significant effects on grape berry composition resulting in improved wine quality by the enhancement of color, flavors, or aromas. While some pathways or enzymes affectedExpand
