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)
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)
Two populations [an F(2) 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)
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 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)
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)
Human copper-cobalt superoxide dismutase in the reduced form has been investigated through 1H NMR techniques. The aim is to monitor the structural properties of this derivative and to compare them with those of reduced and oxidized native superoxide dismutases. The observed signals of the cobalt ligands have been assigned as well as the signals of the(More)
Prior work has demonstrated a new process utilizing room temperature liquid metal, galinstan, as an interconnect material for flip chip bonding. This interconnect forms a flexible bond between chips and carriers and therefore a flip chip assembly using this technology is much less susceptible to thermomechanical stresses. This paper applies this concept to(More)
