Georeferenced phylogenetic analysis of a global collection of wild and cultivated Citrullus species
The results support previous findings that revealed C. mucosospermus to be the closest relative to C. lanatus and C. colocynthis and call for further historical and phylogeographical investigations and wider collection of samples in West and northeastern Africa. Expand
Citrullus colocynthis an Important Plant in Indian Traditional System of Medicine
This work is an endeavor to assemble and explore the various phytochemical and pharmacological properties announced till date of Citrullus colocynthis. Expand
Mapping a Partial Andromonoecy Locus in Citrullus lanatus Using BSA-Seq and GWAS Approaches
It is demonstrated that the occurrence of bisexual and hermaphrodite flowers in a PA line is not dependent on CitACS4, but conferred by an unlinked recessive gene which is called pa, which is found in chromosome 1 of watermelon. Expand
Durability of resistance to meloidogyne mediated by r-genes in solanaceous and cucurbitaceous crops
The main aim of this thesis was to determine the durability of resistance to Meloidogyne of Citrullus amarus and Solanum torvum as potential rootstocks for watermelon and eggplant, respectively and the maximum multiplication rate, the maximum population density and the equilibrium density values of both Meloidsogyne species were lower in grafted than ungrafted watermelon.

Evaluation of nutritional composition, physico-chemical and sensory properties of ‘Robo’ (A Nigerian traditional snack) produced from watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) seeds
The study showed that the ‘Robo’ samples contained high amounts of vitamin B-complex and minerals and low amounts of heavy metals, which will create ready-made market for the underutilized watermelon seeds and as well as creating more income to watermelon farmers. Expand
Origin and domestication of Cucurbitaceae crops:insights from phylogenies, genomics and archaeology.
Insights on cucurbit domestication from new phylogenies, archaeology, and genomic studies are reviewed, suggesting that an annual life cycle may have contributed to domestication. Expand
The aim of the present review is to present a brief overview of the biotechnological perspectives of C. colocynthis, which is resistant to high temperatures and grows in the desert regions of North Africa, the Middle East and Western Asia. Expand
Chromosome numbers, Sudanese wild forms, and classification of the watermelon genus Citrullus, with 50 names allocated to seven biological species
To help improve Citrullus taxonomy and nomenclature, some 50 scientific names to seven biological species are allocated, chromosome counts are correct, and notes on misidentified germplasms traceable by accession numbers are provided. Expand
Could taxonomic misnaming threaten the ex situ conservation and the usage of plant genetic resources?
It is observed that taxonomic misnaming greatly limits PGR conservation with only 3% of the accessions listed in the databases correctly named; moreover, 28% were affected by taxonomic errors that prevent the establishment of theAccessions’ taxonomic identity, with consequences on their conservation and exploitation.

Genetic Resources of Watermelon
Genetic resources within Citrullus contain genes conferring resistance to a broad range of fungal diseases such as Fusarium wilt, anthracnose, gummy stem blight; oomycete diseases including Phytophthora capsici, powdery mildew, downy mildews; viruses such as the watermelon strain of Papaya ringspot virus, Zucchini yellow mosaic virus, and Squash vein yellowing virus; and insect pests.
