Book Description

The last two decades has been the most exciting period in cucurbit genetic, genomic and breeding research especially for cucumber, melon and watermelon and cucumber became the first cucurbit to be sequenced, after other field crops such as rice, sorghum, soybean and maize. This book provides an in-depth review of the state-of-the-art of genetic and genomic research conducted in cucurbits in 13 chapters by 34 internationally renowned scientists and will be useful to cucurbit researchers as well as scientists working in other crops.
