Viral diseases are very detrimental to watermelon production. Watermelon silver mottle virus (WSMoV) is a major limiting factor for the production of watermelon and other cucurbit fruits. There are no effective natural sources of resistance to WSMoV, making transgenic resistance an appropriate solution for attenuating virus infection. Hyperhydricity is an important problem in watermelon culture in vitro, resulting from lower multiplication rates, poor quality shoots and tissue necrosis. In this… CONTINUE READING
