by Rochester Institute of Technolog

grapevines, a feat they hope will ultimately help protect the multibillion-dollar grape Scientists have mapped the DNA of bacteria found within a chronic disease affecting industry that produces juice, jelly, wine and other important products.

Researchers including several Rochester Institute of Technology faculty and alumni sequenced the microbiome found within tumors of grapevines afflicted with crown gall disease. The study spanned four continents and sheds light on the complex interaction between the grapevine and its microbial community, which could lead to better management of the crown gall disease in the future.
