Description

COST ACTION CA17111 “DATA INTEGRATION TO MAXIMISE THE POWER OF OMICS FOR GRAPEVINE IMPROVEMENT” has officially started in September of 2018.

Imagine having all of the data about grapevines accessible in a single place

The European network INTEGRAPE seeks the complete integration of information about one of the oldest crop — grapevines — and their main products: wine, table grapes and raisins. In particular, the world grape and wine industries will have access to full and up-to-date information to meet their major challenges: to improve grape berry quality and produce better wines, while limiting the use of pesticides and adapting the wine industry to the threats of climate change.

New techniques allow the study of thousands of grapevine and grape characteristics at once, which generates huge datasets that are only manageable with the support of dedicated informatics tools. These datasets are also usually generated in different non-standardised formats across research laboratories, and stored on researcher laboratory computers or as local databases, which makes them poorly accessible for further use.


What are we doing?

As for the invention of special tools to start to understand the connections of the stars in the constellations, INTEGRAPE will develop and promote tools that are dedicated to harnessing and exploiting all of the available datasets collected by grapevine scientists in the fields of molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and systems biology.


Where is it going?

Last, but not least, INTEGRAPE will make these data available and usable beyond the original experiments, and they will be interoperable in a secure and standardised format, to develop these grapevine datasets to be available to the public and to private research communities.
