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 ...
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) ...
GENOMES UNCOUPLED1-independent retrograde signaling targets the ethylene pathway to repress photomorphogenesis
(Plant Physiology, 2020-11-19) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
When germinating in the light, Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) seedlings undergo photomorphogenic development, characterized by short hypocotyls, greening, and expanded cotyledons. Stressed chloroplasts ...
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 ...
