Transgenic grapes. Close-up of transgenic grapes (Vitis sp.) growing in a vineyard. Transgenic plants are plants that have been genetically engineered to contain one or more genes not found in that species. The genes confer desirable traits, such as disease resistance, herbicide resistance, increased flavour, increased hardiness, or increased size. Photographed at the University of Verona, Italy.
