Wine yeast strains exhibit a wide variability in their technological properties. The large number of allelic variants and the high degree of heterozygosity explain this genetic variability found among the yeast flora. Furthermore, most enological traits are controlled by polygenic systems presenting complex interactions between the alleles. Taking this into account, we hypothesized that the meiotic segregation of such alleles from a given strain might generate a progeny population with very… CONTINUE READING
