Students get ready for the final academic push of the semester -- finals week.
Wine & Grape
The 4th Annual Grape and Wine Research Symposium was held May 8 at Monsanto Auditorium. The symposium was hosted by MU’s Grape and Wine Institute and showcased the promising work occurring at MU and other institutions. Topics included an overview of Missouri’s viticultural history in the 1800s, and research presentations ranged from applied research topics, such as how wineries are organized in emerging wine regions, to basic science, such as genetic marker-assisted grape breeding.
