A comprehensive genome variation map of melon identifies multiple domestication events and loci influencing agronomic traits
(Nature Genetics, 2019-11-01) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
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 ...
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) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
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 ...
Mapping Cucumber Vein Yellowing Virus Resistance in Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) by Using BSA-seq Analysis
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2019-12-03) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
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 ...
Genetic dissection of climacteric fruit ripening in a melon population segregating for ripening behavior
(Horticulture Research, 2020-11-01) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
Melon is as an alternative model to understand fruit ripening due to the coexistence of climacteric and non-climacteric varieties within the same species, allowing the study of the processes that regulate ...
Genetic dissection of aroma biosynthesis in melon and its relationship with climacteric ripening
(Food Chemistry, 2021-03-05) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
Aroma is an essential trait in melon fruit quality, but its complexity and genetic basis are still poorly understood. The aim of this study was the identification of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) ...
A novel introgression line collection to unravel the genetics of climacteric ripening and fruit quality in melon
(Scientific Reports, 2021-05-31) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
Introgression lines are valuable germplasm for scientists and breeders, since they ease genetic studies such as QTL interactions and positional cloning as well as the introduction of favorable alleles ...
