1. Summary of work to be allocated into a specific WG
Study of grapevine responses to cold stress by changes in gene expression of different pathways, transcriptome analysis of expressing profile and possible role of CBF transcription factors in grapevine cold acclimation phenomenon. Investigation of biochemical parametres like sugars, starch, proline, amino acid and reactive oxygen species (ROS). The work is mostly integrated into WG2.
2. Links with other WG and/or Subgroups
The work is also linked with, WG2.1 in order to identify unknown regulatory factors controlling abiotic stress and recognize cross-talk between stress signalling pathways.
