About COST Action CA17111
COST ACTION CA17111
“DATA INTEGRATION TO MAXIMISE THE POWER OF OMICS FOR GRAPEVINE IMPROVEMENT”
officially started in September 2018.
Establish an open, international, and representative network that integrates data from existing resources in a cost-effective manner, as well as making interoperable grapevine dataset and tools available in a secure and standardized format.

Imagine having all data on grapevine accessible in a single place…
The European network INTEGRAPE seeks to completely integrate all information regarding one of the world’s oldest crops — grapevine — and their main products: wine, table grapes and raisins. In particular, the world’s grape and wine industries will have full access to up-to-date information to meet their major challenges: to improve grape berry quality and produce better wines, whilst 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 generate huge datasets manageable only with the support of dedicated informatic tools. These datasets are often generated in different non-standardised formats across research laboratories, stored on a researcher’s lab computer or on a local database, which makes them poorly accessible for further use.
What are we doing?
INTEGRAPE will develop and promote tools that are dedicated to harnessing and exploiting all available datasets collected by grapevine scientists in the fields of molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and systems biology.
Where is this going?
Last but not least, INTEGRAPE will make this data available and usable beyond the original experiments, and will be interoperable in a secure and standardised format, to develop these grapevine datasets in order to be made available to public and private research communities.
