The article presents information on a study conducted in botany, in which a consensus genetic map in melon was constructed by using highly transferable anchor markers that have broad potential use for mapping and comparative quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis. Under the International Cucurbit Genomics Initiative, integrated genetic map was constructed by merging data from eight independent mapping experiments using a genetically diverse array of parental lines.
