CucCAP scientists and collaborators provide an extensive review of the literature to systematically document genes for simply inherited traits, QTL for 130 quantitative traits, and develop recommendations for QTL nomenclature in cucumber. In a separate study, researchers conducted comparative analysis on the genetic basis of fruit size and shape variation among cucumber, melon and watermelon, and revealed both conserved and unique genetic architecture of fruit size/shape variation among cucurbit crops.
PAG brings together over 3,000 leading genetic scientists and researchers in plant and animal research, and over 130 exhibits, 150 workshops, 1100 posters and over 1800 abstracts.
CucCAP participants at PAG XXVIII include cucurbit breeders and genomic scientists. The cucurbit session organizers are Amnon Levi and Patrick Wechter. Presentations by CucCAP authors include: QTL and Transcrptomic Analyses Implicate Cuticule Transcription Factor Shine As a Source of Natural Variation for Epidermal Traits in Cucumber: Zhangjun Fei, Rebecca Grumet, Ben N. Mansfeld, and Yiqun Weng De Novo Genome Assembly of Sweet […]
