NEFG PhD Student Gultakin Hasanaliyeva attended the 10th International Symposium on Grapevine Physiology and Biotechnology held in Verona, Italy from 13th – 18th July. The University of Verona organised the symposium, which included ‘plant physiology and development, environmental and pathogen interactions, genomics, metabolomics and fruit quality’.
Beyond attending, Gultakin presented a poster on her research project, which focuses on how different management practices effect yield and quality of table and wine grapes.
Her research includes a meta-analysis of studies including composition data for grapes/wine, which found differences in antioxidant activity between organic and non-organic grapes. The abstract submitted to the symposium can be viewed through this link.
