Harnessing Genomics for Disease Resistance in Cucumbers, Melons and Squashes | Scientia

Cucurbits are an important source of food worldwide and are economically important. These crops experience a high level of disease pressures from a suite of common diseases. Through genomic studies collaborators in the CucCAP project aim to bring disease-resistant cucumbers, melons, squash and watermelon to farmers and hence ensure greater food sustainability into the future. This article available on the Scientia website’s E-Library presents the CucCAP story to a broad audience and is available in both E-book and Audio book formats.
