Provided by Janne Hansen, Aarhus University The cattle genome has now been mapped to a hitherto unknown degree of detail. This constitutes a quantum leap for research into the history and genetics of cattle. By creating a global database an international consortium of scientists has increased the detailed knowledge of the variation in the cattle genome by several orders of magnitude. The first generation of the new data resource, which will be open access, forms an essential tool for...

wine aroma
2014-10-07 04:00:17

Provided by Barbara Wankerl, Technische Universität München (TUM) The majority of wines are produced from around 20 different types of grape, all of which have their own typical aroma. This is due to the terpenes, a diverse category of chemical substances including cholesterol and estrogen. Scientists have now identified two enzymes that determine the terpene content – and thus the aroma intensity – of grapes. The findings could play an important role in the future development of...
