The investigation of key molecular events underlying grape berry development can provide useful data for the improvement of mature berry quality traits, a goal in this commercially important fruit crop. Berry development has been investigated at the transcriptional level to study global expression profiles during formation and ripening, while a smaller number of large-scale metabolite studies have been carried out till now. Here we present a meta-analysis of the “transcriptional story” of grape berry development by analysing the data from all transcriptional studies published to date using different analysis methods in diverse cultivars.

Keywords: Berry development, Cell wall metabolism, EST analysis, Expression profiles, Gene expression, Hormone biosynthesis, Metabolome, Microarray analysis, Primary metabolism, Secondary metabolism, Transcriptome.
