Genome-wide characterization of simple sequence repeats in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
TLDR
The cucumber genome is rich in microsatellites; AT and AAG are the most abundant repeat motifs in genomic and EST sequences of cucumber, respectively; the level of polymorphism seems to be positively associated with the number of repeat units in the microsatellite. Expand
The genome of melon (Cucumis melo L.)
TLDR
The data suggest that transposon amplification may in part explain the increased size of the melon genome compared with the close relative cucumber, and a low number of nucleotide-binding site–leucine-rich repeat disease resistance genes were annotated, suggesting the existence of specific defense mechanisms in this species.

Chromosome-Specific Painting in Cucumis Species Using Bulked Oligonucleotides
TLDR
An oligonucleotide (oligo)-based chromosome painting technique in cucumber that will be applicable in any plant species with a sequenced genome is developed and precisely map the pairing between cucumber chromosome 7 and chromosome 1 of Cucumis hystrix in a F1 hybrid. Expand
QTL-seq identifies an early flowering QTL located near Flowering Locus T in cucumber
TLDR
Support is provided for Csa1G651710 as a possible candidate gene for early flowering in the cucumber line Muromskij, which is a homolog of the FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT), the main flowering switch gene in Arabidopsis. Expand
Chromosome rearrangements during domestication of cucumber as revealed by high-density genetic mapping and draft genome assembly.
TLDR
The results support the sub-species status of these two cucumber taxa, and suggest that C. sativus var. Expand
Identification and characterisation of Dof transcription factors in the cucumber genome
TLDR
Analysis of the expression patterns of CsDof genes in specific tissues and their response to two biotic stresses indicated that Cs Dof may be involved in resistance toBiotic stresses in cucumber. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
TLDR
Insight into the genetic structure of cucumber will help developing appropriate conservation strategies and provides a basis for population-level genome sequencing in cucumber. Expand
Fine mapping of the pleiotropic locus B for black spine and orange mature fruit color in cucumber identifies a 50 kb region containing a R2R3-MYB transcription factor
TLDR
This study investigated the inheritance of spine and mature fruit skin colors in F2 and F3 populations derived from a cross between two inbred lines and confirmed that a single, dominant gene, B, controlled both black spine color and orange mature fruit color. Expand
Identification and validation of a core set of microsatellite markers for genetic diversity analysis in watermelon, Citrullus lanatus Thunb. Matsum. & Nakai
TLDR
The utility of this core set SSR markers was demonstrated in 100 commercial watermelon cultivars and elite lines, which could be placed into six clusters that were largely consistent with previous classification based on morphology and parentage data. Expand
Microsatellite markers associated with two Aegilops tauschii-derived greenbug resistance loci in wheat
TLDR
A new source of greenbug resistance derived from Aegilops tauschii (Coss.) Schmal was identified in W7984, a synthetic hexaploid wheat line and one parent of the International Triticeae Mapping Initiative (ITMI) mapping population, and a microsatellite map of Gb3 is constructed, which should be a valuable tool for marker-assisted selection of G b3-conferred greenbugs resistance in wheat breeding.
