UMR 1287 EGFV of INRA and Bordeaux Sciences Agro

The Mixt Research Unit Vine Ecophysiology and Functional Genomics (Unité Mixte de Recherche Ecophysiologie et Génomique Fonctionnelle de la Vigne, UMR EGFV) carries out research to assess the impact of Climate Change in viticulture. The activities are divided in two major axes : « the grafted plant  » and « berry quality  ». The tools we work with encompass genetics, genomics, biochemistry and modelling. In the grafted plant axis, the research focuses on the mechanisms of drought resistance in root stocks. In the berry quality axis, several programs are running on various aspects of the effects abiotic factors (including water, nitrogen, temperature and light) on berry composition. The effect of temperature on vine phenology and berry composition is studied at various scales, from the greenhouse to the vineyard. This research includes a program of measuring spatial temperature variability in vineyards at a very refined scale and the study of its impacts on vine phenology and berry composition.
