Cucurbit Breeding Links

Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative
The Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative website is an organizational vehicle for scientists to share the results of their research and development efforts in the genetics and breeding of species of the Cucurbitaceae crop family. The cooperative emphasizes the free exchange of information and germplasm among members, both public and private.

Cucurbit Genomics Database (CuGenDB)
The Cucurbit Genomics Database (CuGenDB) serves as a central portal of Phenotypic data for cucurbit comparative and functional genomics.

Melon Powdery Mildew Database at UC Riverside
This website provides instructions for inoculum production procedures, collection of conidia for cryopreservation, and maintenance & sub-culturing strains of melon powdery mildew on squash leaves.

NC State Cucurbit Breeding
Research in the cucurbit breeding program at NC State focuses on collection and evaluation of germplasm, qualitative genetics of important traits, quantitative genetics, selection methods, yield improvement, induced mutation, and resistance to cold, insects, and disease.
