In this article:
Covers the state of research into genetic manipulation of grapevines in Australia.
Discusses identification of grapevine varieties by DNA analysis and the database developed by the CSIRO to enable such identification.
Techniques for identifying favourable genetic characteristics and the favourable outcomes that could be produced by future manipulation of such genes is discussed.
Article concludes with discussion of transgenic manipulation techniques that could be used to achieve such genetic manipulation in the future.
