CucCAP scientist James D. McCreight is a contributor to the 2021 CGC report.
CucCAP researchers developed 5 Phytophthora fruit rot resistant watermelon germplasm lines with high levels of resistance against a broad range of diverse P. capsici isolates collected from across the United States.
Members of the cucurbit breeding, genetics, and genomics research community are encouraged to submit reports for the 2021 -2022, Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative Report #44. Manuscripts or reports should be submitted to Amnon Levi by February 28th, 2022.
Editors of the Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative are now accepting reports for CGC #44.
The Smart Lab at Cornell School of Integrative Plant Science seeks a Post-Doctoral Associate to study oomycete pathogens of vegetables including Phytophthora capsici.
The University of New Hampshire seeks a tenure-track faculty member with demonstrated expertise in the area of plant genetic improvement. The appointee is expected to develop a research program focused on the applied genetic improvement of horticultural crops. Using genome-enabled trait development and breeding strategies, the candidate is expected to work on horticultural crop improvement. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on December 1, 2021.
CucCAP scientists Amnon Levi, Linda Wessel Beaver and Todd Wehner are members of the CGC Coordinating Committee. They collaborated with the Cucurbit research community to publish this report.
University of Georgia researchers have now developed a faster way to detect the presence of Fusarium wilt.
