An improved assembly and annotation of the melon (Cucumis melo L.) reference genome
(Scientific Reports, 2018-05-24)
We report an improved assembly (v3.6.1) of the melon (Cucumis melo L.) genome and a new genome annotation (v4.0). The optical mapping approach allowed correcting the order and the orientation of 21 ...
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 ...
QTL mapping of melon fruit quality traits using a high-density GBS-based genetic map
(BMC Plant Biology, 2018-12-04)
Background Melon shows a broad diversity in fruit morphology and quality, which is still underexploited in breeding programs. The knowledge of the genetic basis of fruit quality traits is important for ...
