Two populations [an F2 and a set of 77 double haploid lines (DHLs)] developed from a cross between a ‘Piel de Sapo’ cultivar (PS) and the exotic Korean accession PI 161375 were used to detect QTLs involved in melon fruit quality traits: earliness (EA), fruit shape (FS), fruit weight (FW) and sugar content (SSC); and loci involved in the colour traits:(More)
A map of melon (Cucumis melo L.) with 411 markers (234 RFLPs, 94 AFLPs, 47 RAPDs, 29 SSRs, five inter-SSRs, and two isozymes) and one morphological trait (carpel number) was constructed using the F2 progeny of a cross between the Korean accession P1161375 and the Spanish melon type 'Pinyonet Piel de Sapo'. RFLPs were obtained using 212 probes from different(More)
A genetic map of melon enriched for fruit traits was constructed, using a recombinant inbred (RI) population developed from a cross between representatives of the two subspecies of Cucumis melo L.: PI 414723 (subspecies agrestis) and ‘Dulce’ (subspecies melo). Phenotyping of 99 RI lines was conducted over three seasons in two locations in Israel and the US.(More)
Thirty-four polymorphic simple-sequence repeats (SSRs) were evaluated for length polymorphism in melon (Cucumis melo L.) and cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). SSR markers were located on three melon maps (18 on the map of 'Vedrantais' and PI 161375, 23 on the map of 'Piel de Sapo' and PI 161375, and 16 on the map of PI 414723 and 'Dulce'). In addition, 14 of(More)
A set of 118 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers has been developed in melon from two different sources: genomic libraries (gSSR) and expressed sequence-tag (EST) databases (EST-SSR). Forty-nine percent of the markers showed polymorphism between the ‘Piel de Sapo’ (PS) and PI161375 melon genotypes used as parents for the mapping populations. Similar(More)
Three different types of molecular markers, RAPD, AFLP and RFLP were used to measure genetic diversity among six genotypes of Cucumis melo L. Each line represented a different melon genotype: Piel de Sapo, Ogen, PI161375, PI414723, Agrestis and C105. A number of polymorphic RAPD, AFLP and RFLP bands were scored on all materials and the genetic similarity(More)
A bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library was constructed for watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai var. lanatus) with an average insert-size of 106 kb, providing 21 haploid genome equivalents. The library was used to identify BAC clones that are anchored to probes evenly distributed on the genomes of melon or Arabidopsis. Twenty(More)
Non-contact, direct mechanical impedance measurements of the human index finger were performed under sinusoidal force inputs. The force amplitudes from the transducer were from 0.05 N to 0.5 N over the frequency range 50 Hz to 500 Hz, which covers the region of interest for vibrotactile feedback for handheld applications. We found that the vibrational mode(More)
