Grapevine gene editing using geminivirus-derived vectors

Our first experiments for gene editing using CRISPR-Cas9 in the species began in 2014. Six years later we have published our first results and conclusions. More here

Massive propagation systems

Formulated as a spin-off experience, we developed Temporary Immersion Systems to massively clone sweet cherry varieties and rootstocks.

 In Rothkegel et al. (Dec's  issue, 1739-1751) we showed that during cold accumulation,  siRNAs and DNA methylation participate in the regulation of MADS-box genes involved in dormancy.  More here
