    Background: Melon (Cucumis melo), an economically important vegetable crop, belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family which includes several other important crops such as watermelon, cucumber, and pumpkin. It has served as a model system for sex determination and vascular biology studies. However,...

  • Genome-wide BAC-end sequencing of Cucumis melo using two BAC libraries. González, Víctor M.; Rodríguez-Moreno, Luis; Centeno, Emilio; Benjak, Andrej; Garcia-Mas, Jordi; Puigdomènech, Pere; Aranda, Miguel A. // BMC Genomics;2010, Vol. 11, p618 

    Background: Although melon (Cucumis melo L.) is an economically important fruit crop, no genome-wide sequence information is openly available at the current time. We therefore sequenced BAC-ends representing a total of 33,024 clones, half of them from a previously described melon BAC library...

    In order to better understand the mechanisms by which muskmelons ( Cucumis melo L.) respond to salt stress, a cDNA library was constructed using suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) from the root tissue of a salt-tolerant melon cultivar, Bingxuecui. A total of 339 clones were sequenced...

  • Sequencing of 6.7 Mb of the melon genome using a BAC pooling strategy. González, Víctor M; Benjak, Andrej; Hénaff, Elizabeth Marie; Mir, Gisela; Casacuberta, Josep M.; Garcia-Mas, Jordi; Puigdomènech, Pere // BMC Plant Biology;2010, Vol. 10, p246 

    Background: Cucumis melo (melon) belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family, whose economic importance among horticulture crops is second only to Solanaceae. Melon has a high intra-specific genetic variation, morphologic diversity and a small genome size (454 Mb), which make it suitable for a great...

    Many plant ESTs have been sequenced as an alternative to whole genome sequences, including peanut because of the genome size and complexity. The US peanut research community had the historic 2004 Atlanta Genomics Workshop and named the EST project as a main priority. As of August 2011, the...

    Expressed sequence tag (EST) sequencing projects are underway for numerous organisms, generating millions of short, single-pass nucleotide sequence reads, accumulating in EST databases. Extensive computational strategies have been developed to organize and analyse both small- and large-scale EST...

Caño-Delgado // BMC Genomics;2009, Vol. 10, p467 

    Background: Melon (Cucumis melo) is a horticultural specie of significant nutritional value, which belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family, whose economic importance is second only to the Solanaceae. Its small genome of approx. 450 Mb coupled to the high genetic diversity has prompted the...

  • A genetic map of melon highly enriched with fruit quality QTLs and EST markers, including sugar and carotenoid metabolism genes. Harel-Beja, R.; Tzuri, G.; Portnoy, V.; Lotan-Pompan, M.; Lev, S.; Cohen, S.; Dai, N.; Yeselson, L.; Meir, A.; Libhaber, S. E.; Avisar, E.; Melame, T.; van Koert, P.; Verbakel, H.; Hofstede, R.; Volpin, H.; Oliver, M.; Fougedoire, A.; Stalh, C.; Fauve, J. // Theoretical & Applied Genetics;Aug2010, Vol. 121 Issue 3, p511 

    A genetic map of melon enriched for fruit traits was constructed, using a recombinant inbred (RI) population developed from a cross between representatives of the two subspecies of Cucumis melo L.: PI 414723 (subspecies agrestis) and ‘Dulce’ (subspecies melo). Phenotyping of 99 RI...

  • Simple-sequence repeat markers used in merging linkage maps of melon (Cucumis melo L.) Gonzalo, M. J.; Oliver, M.; Garcia-Mas, J.; Monfort, A.; Dolcet-Sanjuan, R.; Katzir, N.; Arús, P.; Monforte, A. J. // Theoretical & Applied Genetics;Mar2005, Vol. 110 Issue 5, p802 

    A set of 118 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers has been developed in melon from two different sources: genomic libraries (gSSR) and expressed sequence-tag (EST) databases (EST-SSR). Forty-nine percent of the markers showed polymorphism between the ‘Piel de Sapo’ (PS) and PI161375...

  • Genetic variability for valuable fruit quality traits in Cucumis melo. Burger, Yosef; Sa'ar, Uzi; Paris, Harry S.; Lewinsohn, Efraim; Katzir, Nurit; Tadmor, Yaakov; Schaffer, Arthur A. // Israel Journal of Plant Sciences;2006, Vol. 54 Issue 3, p233 

    Melon (Cucumis melo L.) is highly polymorphic for fruit traits, providing seemingly endless possibilities for genetic improvement through introgression and recombination. By expanding our knowledge of genetic variation for various fruit-quality components and relationships among them, we have...
