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

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
