Leveraging Applied Genomics to Increase Disease Resistance in Cucurbit Crops

Harnessing genomic resources for disease resistance and management in cucurbit crops – bringing the tools to the field


Cucurbit Coordinated Agricultural Project

The objectives of the CucCAP project are to:

  • Develop advanced bioinformatic and genomic tools for cucurbits
  • Identify, map, and develop markers for resistances to priority diseases identified by cucurbit industries
  • Introduce resistances into advanced breeding lines
  • Develop improved integrated disease management for cucurbit crops
