Natural resistances to viruses in cucurbits
(Agronomy, 2020-12-24) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
Cucurbit viruses cause considerable economic losses worldwide. The most common viral diseases affecting this crop family are Potyviruses, Cucumoviruses, Criniviruses, Ipomoviruses, Tobamoviruses, and ...
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 ...
