  • Melon (Cucumis melo L.), a member of the Cucurbitaceae family, ranks as the 9th most cultivated horticultural crop in terms of total world production.
  • In addition to its significant economic value, melon is also an attractive model for the study of valuable biological characteristics, such as fruit ripening, sex determination, and phloem physiology.
  • The full sequence of melon genome is readily available, which greatly facilitates the identification of genes underlying certain traits and the elucidation of mechanisms that regulate relevant characteristics.
