International Grape Genome Program
The primary research focus of this web site is grapevine genomics carried out within the framework of the International Grape Genome Program (IGGP). It is expected that this new genomic knowledge will have a significant impact on our understanding of grapevine biology, viticulture and enology. Plant biologists, viticulturists and enologists are encouraged to contribute their expertise and form collaborations with genetic and molecular scientists within the IGGP. The Steering Committee of the IGGP consists of international members from the major wine regions of the world. Working groups are formed from time to time to define directions and make recommendations.
