International Grape Genome Program

The Grape Research Coordination Network (GRCN)

The Grape Research Coordination Network (GRCN) was funded by the National Science Foundation from 2008 to 2013 and coordinated by Grant Cramer.

With the sequencing of the grapevine genome completed, the IGGP steering committee identified the development of functional genomic platforms, bioinformatics, and the synchronization of funding between different international parties as high priorities. This Grape Research Coordination Network (GRCN) project aimed at facilitating addressing the identified issues.

Our objectives were:

  • to coordinate grape functional genomic research among US grape researchers
  • to articulate and coordinate US research with international initiatives by:
    • Facilitating the development of non-redundant functional genomic resources in grape through scientific exchange and dialog.
    • Establishing institutional collaborations and partnerships among American, French, Italian, South African, Canadian, Spanish, Australian and other international institutes including exchanges of scientists and students between institutes for research and education, and attendance at international and virtual conferences and workshops that are focused on networking activities and grape functional genomics.

The RCN steering committee will organized workshops, conferences and scientific exchanges between US labs and between US and international labs, which were advertised on the IGGP web site, in order to facilitate national and international grape research and communication along with the enhancement of the education of early career scientists.

The Grape Research Coordination Network (GRCN) was funded by the National Science Foundation grant no. DBI 0741876 for 5 years from 2008 to 2013 and coordinated by Grant Cramer.
