Vitis vinifera


Overview


Vitis vinifera, the grapevine, has been used to produce wine for thousands of years. This was the fourth genome of a flowering plant produced, selected because of it’s importance in food production. Also vitis lacks any recent genome doublings; it resembles a more ancestral state of the genome and revealed some major insights in the evolution of Angiosperms.
