A High Quality Draft Consensus Sequence of the Genome of a Heterozygous Grapevine Variety
BACKGROUND Worldwide, grapes and their derived products have a large market. The cultivated grape species Vitis vinifera has potential to become a model for fruit trees genetics. Like many plantExpand

Metabolite profiling of grape: Flavonols and anthocyanins.
Flavonols are products of the flavonoid biosynthetic pathway, which also give rise to anthocyanins and condensed tannins in grapes. We investigated their presence in the berry skins of 91 grapeExpand

Genetic diversity and population structure assessed by SSR and SNP markers in a large germplasm collection of grape
BackgroundThe economic importance of grapevine has driven significant efforts in genomics to accelerate the exploitation of Vitis resources for development of new cultivars. However, although a largeExpand

Molecular linkage maps of Vitis vinifera L. and Vitis riparia Mchx
Abstract. Two linkage maps for grape (Vitis spp.) have been developed based on 81 F1 plants derived from an interspecific cross between the wine cultivar Moscato bianco (Vitis vinifera L.) and aExpand

Ripening and genotype control stilbene accumulation in healthy grapes.
In grapes, stilbene synthesis occurs in the skin, and it is induced by biotic and abiotic stresses. To date, experimental evidence of a constitutive production of resveratrols in healthy grape isExpand

A Dense Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism-Based Genetic Linkage Map of Grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) Anchoring Pinot Noir Bacterial Artificial Chromosome Contigs
The construction of a dense genetic map for Vitis vinifera and its anchoring to a BAC-based physical map is described: it includes 994 loci mapped onto 19 linkage groups, corresponding to the basicExpand

Relationship of changes in rotundone content during grape ripening and winemaking to manipulation of the 'peppery' character of wine.
Biosynthesis of the sesquiterpene rotundone in Vespolina grapes during berry ripening was investigated over two consecutive seasons, revealing that the compound accumulates from veraison to harvestExpand

Genetic linkage maps of two interspecific grape crosses (Vitis spp.) used to localize quantitative trait loci for downy mildew resistance
Two populations (Pop) segregating quantitatively for resistance to downy mildew (DM), caused by Plasmopara viticola, were used to construct genetic maps and to carry out quantitative trait locusExpand

Genome diversity and gene haplotypes in the grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.), as revealed by single nucleotide polymorphisms
EST (expressed sequence tags) sequencing, SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms) development and haplotype assessment are powerful tools for the support of marker-assisted selection. The grapevineExpand

Pinot blanc and Pinot gris arose as independent somatic mutations of Pinot noir
Somatic mutation is a natural mechanism which allows plant growers to develop new cultivars. As a source of variation within a uniform genetic background, it also represents an ideal tool forExpand
