Abbreviation for "International Grape Genome Program", an international collaboration on the subject of vine research with a focus on genome research. There are research centers in Australia (here is CSIRO involved), Chile, Germany, France, Italy, Canada, Spain, South Africa and the USA. The determination of the genome sequence of the grapevine was an important prerequisite. The main goals of the project are the improvement of earnings and quality in the production of grapes genetic engineering Changes in the genome. Among other things, foreign genes with a desired property such as resistance against mushrooms. virus or insect pests are introduced into the genetic stock of grape varieties without, however, changing the other genes or properties characteristic of this variety. These techniques are controversial and discussions about them are very emotional. See also under DNA and molecular Genetics,
