In 2007, the scientific community and wine world welcomed the complete genome sequencing of Vitis vinifera L cv Pinot Noir (Valasco et al. 2007, The French-Italian Public Consortium for Grapevine Genome Characterization, 2007), which made grape the first fruit and second commercial crop after rice to be fully sequenced. The development of high-throughput analytical techniques for analyzing the genome, proteome and metabolome resulted in the accumulation of large quantities of biological data for the living organisms and grape in particular, which currently is recognized as a 'systems biology' approach.
