Abstract

Manipulating gene expression is critical to exploring gene function and a useful tool for altering commercial<br>traits. Quality improvements depend on applying new genetic insights and new technologies to accelerate<br>breeding through improved genotyping and phenotyping methods, and by increasing the available genetic<br>diversity in germplasm. The proposed work on fundamental processes of plant RNA interference interactions with<br>Xylella fastidiosa leverages translational science from model organisms to the market, with potential for broad<br>impacts on agriculture and understanding the mechanisms of pathogen resistance. The molecular approaches<br>supported by this project can have significant impacts on viticulture by: (i) applying deep knowledge from model<br>plant species to grapes; (ii) facilitating optimal selection of parents for breeding and immediate selection of elite<br>progeny with multiple desirable traits; (iii) circumventing biological and societal limits to geneti
