DNA profiling

Identify unknown grape varieties with DNA profiling

Using 12 genetic DNA markers (microsatellites) I can identify your unknown vine by checking its profile against my extensive database composed of more than 2500 grape varieties from all over the world.

Using 50-60 genetic markers, I can discover unsuspected parentages and reconstruct unexpected genealogical trees.
