The Vitis vinifera background of 'Catawba' and 'Concord' was investigated by using SSR analysis: 'Semillon' was shown to be an ancestor of 'Catawba', while the wild parent remains unknown. 'Concord' was confirmed to be an offspring of 'Catawba' and another unknown wild parent. Since these two important American varieties most likely resulted from random natural crosses and successful selection, the original, wild growing wild donors remain unknown. 
Grape Taxonomy and Germplasm
This chapter provides a grape breeder’s perspective on the Vitis germplasm and taxonomic relationships among the species. It reviews current taxonomic perspectives and how the species are organized.
Crop Wild Relatives of Grape (Vitis vinifera L.) Throughout North America
A better understanding of the relationships between North American Vitis species is needed to identify gaps in the current ex situ germplasm collections and efforts must be made to safeguard dwindling populations of some species in their native environments.
Introduction to resistant vine types : a brief history and overview of the situation
The history and current situation of resistant vine types is presented and advances in genomic knowledge and use of molecular markers are presented, enabling more and more solutions against different pathogens.
Editorial: Origins and Domestication of the Grape
In grapevine, changes in berry size, sugar content and the shift in sexual system from dioecy to self-pollination were essential for domestication, so it would be relevant to go back to the wild progenitor, to identify such factors and make them available for resilience breeding.
Color Intensity of the Red-Fleshed Berry Phenotype of Vitis vinifera Teinturier Grapes Varies Due to a 408 bp Duplication in the Promoter of VvmybA1
Quantitative real time PCR and HPLC analysis of leaf and berry samples showed that the GCE repeat number strongly correlates with an increase of the expression of VvmybA1 itself and the VvUFGT gene regulated by it and the anthocyanin content.

A 69 kbp Deletion at the Berry Color Locus Is Responsible for Berry Color Recovery in Vitis vinifera L. Cultivar ‘Riesling Rot’
‘Riesling Weiss’ is a white grapevine variety famous worldwide for fruity wines with higher acidity. Hardly known is ‘Riesling Rot’, a red-berried variant of ‘Riesling Weiss’ that disappeared from
A key ‘foxy’ aroma gene is regulated by homology-induced promoter indels in the iconic juice grape ‘Concord’
Homology-induced promoter indels are discovered as a major genetic mechanism for species-specific regulation of a key ‘foxy’ aroma gene, anthraniloyl-CoA:methanol acyltransferase ( AMAT), that is responsible for MA biosynthesis.
Histopathological study of resistant (Vitis labrusca L.) and susceptible (Vitis vinifera L.) cultivars of grapevine to the infection by downy mildew
ABSTRACT Plasmopara viticola (Berk. & M. A. Curtis) Berl & de Toni is a biotrophic oomycete responsible for downy mildew on grapevine. This study aimed to compare the development of P. viticola
Extent of wild–to–crop interspecific introgression in grapevine (Vitis vinifera) as a consequence of resistance breeding and implications for the crop species definition
A method of multilocus genotype analysis using short-read resequencing to identify haplotypic blocks of wild ancestry in introgression lines and quantify the physical length of chromosome segments free-of-introgression or with monoallelic and biallelic introgressed varieties is developed.


QTL mapping of black rot (Guignardia bidwellii) resistance in the grapevine rootstock ‘Börner’ (V. riparia Gm183 × V. cinerea Arnold)
In the grapevine cultivar ‘Börner’ QTLs for black rot resistance were detected consistently in several independent experiments, and a detailed genetic map is presented for the locus Rgb1 with tightly linked markers valuable for the development for marker-assisted selection forblack rot resistance in grapevine breeding.
Candidate genes within a 143 kb region of the flower sex locus in Vitis
The markers developed will permit the selection of female breeding lines which do not require laborious emasculation thus considerably simplifying grapevine breeding.
Large-scale parentage analysis in an extended set of grapevine cultivars (Vitis vinifera L.)
An extended parentage analysis using a large sample of Vitis vinifera cultivars held in the INRA “Domaine de Vassal” Grape Germplasm Repository" enlarges and clarifies knowledge of the genetic constitution of cultivated V. v inifera germplasm.
Genomics Assisted Ancestry Deconvolution in Grape
The method of ancestry deconvolution provides a first step towards selection at the seed or seedling stage for desirable admixture profiles, which will facilitate marker-assisted breeding that aims to introgress traits from wild Vitis species while retaining the desirable characteristics of elite V. vinifera cultivars.
Identification of microsatellite sequences in Vitis riparia and their applicability for genotyping of different Vitis species.
Thirteen of the markers were found suitable for the genotyping of grapevines (V. vinifera) by a preliminary segregation analysis in 36 offspring and are applicable to the genotypes of a range of Vitis species.
Development and Characterization of Additional Microsatellite DNA Markers for Grape
Twenty-two new grape microsatellite markers were developed from CT-repeat regions cloned from Vitis vinifera Pinot noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, with polymorphic and informative results.

Rpv10: a new locus from the Asian Vitis gene pool for pyramiding downy mildew resistance loci in grapevine
Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis revealed two strong QTLs on linkage groups (LGs) 18 and 09, and the locus on LG 18 was found to be identical with the previously described locus Rpv3 and is transmitted by Gf.Ga-52-42.
