Mapping Cucumber Vein Yellowing Virus Resistance in Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) by Using BSA-seq Analysis
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-12-03)
Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV) causes severe yield losses in cucurbit crops across Mediterranean countries. The control of this virus is based on cultural practices to prevent the presence of its vector (Bemisia ...
CmVPS41 Is a General Gatekeeper for Resistance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus Phloem Entry in Melon
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-10-01)
Melon production is often compromised by viral diseases, which cannot be treated with chemicals. Therefore, the use of genetic resistances is the main strategy for generating crops resistant to viruses. Resistance to ...
An improved melon reference genome with single-molecule sequencing uncovers a recent burst of transposable elements with potential impact on genes
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2020-01-31)
The published melon (Cucumis melo L.) reference genome assembly (v3.6.1) has still 41.6 Mb (Megabases) of sequences unassigned to pseudo-chromosomes and about 57 Mb of gaps. Although different approaches have been undertaken ...
A comprehensive genome variation map of melon identifies multiple domestication events and loci influencing agronomic traits
(Nature Genetics, 2019-11-01)
Melon is an economically important fruit crop that has been cultivated for thousands of years; however, the genetic basis and history of its domestication still remain largely unknown. Here we report a comprehensive map ...
