CucCAP scientist, Rebecca Grumet, will present, “Application of genomic tools for mapping and analysis of valuable traits in cucurbit” at the XIIth Eucarpia Meeting on Cucurbit Genetics and Breeding.
Researchers at Michigan State University used a fluorescent isolate of the broad host range pathogen, Phytophthora capsici, to develop a high-throughput, microtiter plate assay for replicated quantification of pathogen growth on plant tissue in real time. This method, which can detect pathogen growth prior to development of symptoms, can assist with screening for disease resistance, mapping of resistance loci, testing efficacy of control measures, or elucidation of fundamental host-pathogen interactions.
PAG XXIX which was originally scheduled for January 2021 in San Diego, is officially postponed until January 8 – 12, 2022.
The CucCAP cucumber team is breeding cucumbers for resistance to downy mildew and Phytophthora fruit rot.

Cucurbit Genomic Team members include Zhangjun Fei (Boyce Thompson Institute), Umesh Reddy (West Virginia St. Univ.), Amnon Levi (USDA, ARS), Yiqun Weng (USDA, ARS), Michael Mazourek (Cornell University), Pat Wechter (USDA, ARS), and Rebecca Grumet (Michigan State University). In closely working with Cornell Genomic Diversity Facilty, the team has set up the genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) platform for the cucurbit species and have established a GBS data analysis pipeline based on TASSEL-GBS.
