Breeding disease resistant grapevine varieties
09 December 2016 12:00

This course is designed to teach students about diseases resistant grapevine breeding

Several aspects of genetic improvement of grapevines for resistance to diseases will be covered, including tradional grape variety selection and  new techniques for disease resistance, identification of Disease Resistant Germplasm.

The genetic determinant of disease resistance and production of new cultivars resistant to downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola), powdery mildew (Erysiphe necator) and other diseases will be discussed.
