The genome of the cucumber, Cucumis sativus L.
TLDR
This study establishes that five of the cucumber's seven chromosomes arose from fusions of ten ancestral chromosomes after divergence from Cucumis melo, and identifies 686 gene clusters related to phloem function. Expand
An Integrated Genetic and Cytogenetic Map of the Cucumber Genome
TLDR
The development of highly polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers originated from whole genome shotgun sequencing and the subsequent construction of a high-density genetic linkage map will facilitate whole genome sequencing, positional cloning, and molecular breeding in cucumber, and enable the integration of knowledge of gene and trait in cucurbits. Expand
Genetic Markers, Map Construction, and Their Application in Plant Breeding
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to describe available marker types and examine factors critical for their use in map construction and MAS, and defines the potential use of genetic maps for MAS. Expand
Identification of a 1-Aminocyclopropane-1-Carboxylic Acid Synthase Gene Linked to the Female (F) Locus That Enhances Female Sex Expression in Cucumber
TLDR
Southern blot hybridization analysis of near-isogneic gynoecious and monoecious lines derived from diverse genetic backgrounds suggest that CS-ACS1G is closely linked to the F locus and may play a pivotal role in the determination of sex in cucumber flowers. Expand
Genetic mapping and QTL analysis of horticultural traits in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) using recombinant inbred lines
TLDR
RIL-based QTL analysis of the number of lateral branches in three environments revealed four location-independent factors that cumulatively explained 42% of the observed phenotypic variation. Expand
Sources of potential errors in the application of random amplified polymorphic DNAs in cucumber
TLDR
Investigation of factors affecting RAPD banding patterns associated with the age of tissue sampled, microbial and intrapopulation contamination, and the use of different PCR reaction reagents found that sensitivity of RAPD assays may aid in trouble- shooting problems and increasing reproducibility of RAPS analysis. Expand
Genetic dissection of fruit quality components in melon (Cucumis melo L.) using a RIL population derived from exotic × elite US Western Shipping germplasm
TLDR
The characterization of quantitative trait loci (QTL) controlling melon fruit quality for application in marker-assisted selection (MAS) requires an assessment of genotype by environmental interactions, trait correlations, and QTL efficacy. Expand
The development and evaluation of consensus chloroplast primer pairs that possess highly variable sequence regions in a diverse array of plant taxa
TLDR
Successful amplification after extended-length PCR of 16 RCCP primer pairs from cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) DNA suggested that the amplicons detected are representative of the cucumber chloroplast genome. Expand
Towards an expanded and integrated linkage map of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.).
TLDR
The merged maps represent the best fit of the data used and are an important first step towards the construction of a comprehensive linkage map for cucumber. Expand
Diversity in landraces and cultivars of bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria; Cucurbitaceae) as assessed by random amplified polymorphic DNA
TLDR
Principal component analyses of the correlation matrices of the band presence/absence data revealed that southern African germplasm represents adivergent lineage from which several cultivars have been selected, and the evolutionary histories of bottle gourd landraces and cultivars are clarified.
