’A genomic approach to the identification of genetic and environmental components underlying the quality of the grape’. This is the title of the R+D project financed by Genoma España in which the Department of Vegetable Physiology of the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Navarre is participating.
Over the next three years the Fundación Genoma España will provide two million euros to identify the genes responsible for the quality of grapes. Six research teams are working on a dessert variety of grape; specifically, the variety known as Hamburg Moscatel is to be studied. In a parallel manner, in Canada, the same study will be carried out, but on grape variety grown for wine production - Cabernet Sauvignon.
The University of Navarre is participating in the project, providing a cultivation model that has been developed in its laboratories: from a cutting, in four months a plant with its bunch of grapes is obtained. These plants may be grown in the varying environmental conditions desired and form the basis for posterior genetic study at other centres involved in the project.

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
