Alberto Acedo, of Biomemakers, introduces the researches and analysis on soil microbiome designed for the identification of bacterial and fungal species present in the vineyard.
Biomemakers, a company located in San Francisco (CA), had developed an analysis method for DNA sequencing of the soil microbiological component.
Thanks to DNA sequencing it is actually possible to determine the different types of populations present in a vineyard, thus singling out the possible presence of helpful bacteria (PGPR) or pathogen ones (e.g., Armillaria mellea).
