Center for Viticultural Sciences
The mission of the Center for Viticultural Sciences and Small Fruit Research is to conduct research and provide service and support that will help the viticulture industry in Florida to become a viable industry (Florida Viticulture Policy Act, 1978).
Advances in both veterinary medicine technology and technique are the fuel firing the increased demand for well-trained individuals to work as veterinary technologists.
Grape Biotechnology and Proteomics
The unit conducts biochemical and molecular research to identify genetic marker that will help in the development of disease tolerant bunch grapes for Florida growers. Researchers are working on isolating and characterizing the transcripts of proteins from xylem and leaves, and genetic markers relating to disease tolerance, water-stress, ripening, and nutraceutical characteristics of muscadine and Florida Bunch grape.
