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) ...
Editorial: Translational research for cucurbit molecular breeding: Traits, markers, and genes
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2020-11-30) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
Cucurbits (family Cucurbitaceae) are economically important vegetable crops. Major cucurbits growing globally include cucumber, melon, watermelon, and squash/pumpkin. Other cucurbits like bitter melon, ...
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 ...
