The “biotech wine” anti-parasitic
Some researchers of the Monaco University are sure that to accelerate the growth of the grapevine without insects or fungus it is necessary to look inside the grape: a double gene mutation of DNA. Is inside a precise point of his genetic heritage that the scholars of the Institute for Gravepine Breeding JKI have observed the cause that make weak shoots and grapes.
Very important for the long story of the grapes growing was in 1800 the arrival of two grapes-parasitic, an aphid and a fungus, coming from the New World and that destroyed the greater part of production, especially the French one. The modern gene techniques allowed to rebuild everything. The study results reveal that some scholars disagree with them as far as the control in laboratory of the “gene power” of plants is concerned. A revolution involving not only taste and scent inside the bottle but also the healthy features of the wine in our glasses.
